Toronto man Jaiden Jackson, 28 shot 20 times in disturbing video released by Toronto Police
Toronto Police have released a shocking murder video of a man being shot 20 times in the business district on Sunday.
The victim — Jaiden Jackson, 28, of Toronto — was at a private party at the Pick 6 bar at Yonge and Wellington Sts. when he left at about 9 p.m. and was targeted by three suspects.
Jackson had left the party with a woman and noticed the suspects in a late-model black Honda Civic.
“As soon as (Jackson) sees them, he begins to run west on Wellington down a parking ramp (on 18 Wellington W.) said homicide Det. Sgt. Gary Giroux.
At which point, two suspects get out of the car.
“The two chase him down the ramp and the driver is also in chase. You can see (Jackson) run down the ramp and he falls and the two suspects catch up to him and all three begin to shoot at the same time,” Giroux said.
The two suspects re-enter the car and the trio reverse back up the ramp to make their getaway south on Bay St. towards the Gardiner Expressway.
Jackson — who was known to Toronto police — was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The woman he was with has come forward and is co-operating with police.
Police are still going through addition surveillance video from the area to help identify the suspects who concealed their identities.
“They must have known there was video surveillance in the area, but they were not concerned about it,” Giroux said.
