The release of security camera images by police was key to an arrest in a recent Chinatown shooting that left two young fathers dead, Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders says.
Saunders, speaking at a morning news conference, said witnesses were able to identify to police people from the images released earlier this week. Yesterday, Kyle Sparks-Mackinnon, 25, was arrested and charged with two counts of second-degree murder and three counts of attempted murder in the shooting that killed Quinn Taylor, 29, and David Michael Eminess, 26.
“This is a classic case where the public stepped up,” said Saunders. “The public gave us that information that was able to translate into evidence and we’ve been able to arrest somebody.”
