‘Total cowardice’: Police release surveillance video after Scarborough man fatally shot in back while waiting for ride to work

WARNING: The video released by police depicts a disturbing sequence of events.

Toronto police are appealing for help in identifying the suspects wanted in connection with a “brazen” and “cowardly” murder that saw a Scarborough man fatally shot in the back as he waited for a ride to work earlier this week.

“I’m looking for the public’s assistance in this. This was a horrific, cowardly and uncalled-for act,” Det. Sgt. Ted Lioumanis told reporters at a news conference Friday as he stood surrounded by members of the victim’s family.

Man shot to death outside Scarborough apartment was waiting for ride to work: police

Lioumanis said by all accounts, the victim – 45-year-old John Wheeler – was a hard-working man who worked some 15 hours a day as a general contractor. There’s no apparent reason, Lioumanis said, to explain why anyone would come up to him in the middle of the night and shoot him in the back.

On Friday, investigators released several videos and suspect images from the night of the killing.

According to Lioumanis, the suspect vehicle arrived at the apartment building in the area of Danforth Road and Eglinton Avenue East at around 3 a.m. on Aug. 12, its arrival captured on one of the videos released by police.

Around 20-25 minutes later, Wheeler emerges from the building to wait for his ride, a lunch pail in hand along with two coffees – one for him and another for his friend.

As he stands waiting for his ride, another video shows, the suspect with the long gun walks slowly up behind him and points the weapon at his back.

Police were called to the scene at around 3:36 a.m. and arrived to find Wheeler with a single gunshot wound. He was transported to a local hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Another video released by police captured the two suspects – one pointing a gun and another holding a duffel bag.

Police have said that the two men were seen leaving the area in a dark-coloured SUV driven by a woman.

On Friday, investigators also released more detailed suspect descriptions of the men.

The first suspect is described as a Black man in his 20s who is wearing dark clothing with white markings on the sleeves, and a mask. He was carrying a firearm.

The second suspect is described as a white man in his 20s who was wearing dark clothing with white markings on the front, and a mask. He was carrying a black duffle bag.
