Funerals were held on Monday for two of the victims in last week’s deadly shooting in Woodbridge, Ont.
Christopher DeSimone, 24, and 47-year-old Maria Voci were killed during a shooting at the Moka Espresso Bar at the corner of Islington Avenue and Highway 7 on Wednesday, June 24.
An unidentified male suspect entered the café "with a purpose," shortly after 8 a.m. police said, before firing a gun several times at those inside.
Two other men were rushed to hospital following the shooting. One of the injured men has been identified as Rocco Di Paola, a CEO of a Vaughan, Ont., insurance company.
De Simone’s funeral was held at the St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Vaughan.
Voci was an employee at the cafe.
Police are still looking for the suspect, who fled the scene in a black Nissan Versa, with the licence plate number BVLW 273.
On Thursday morning, police released a photo of the suspect running through a parking lot, but the photo was blurry and did not show the man’s face. On Friday afternoon, police released four photos from a different security camera.
The photos show the suspect, who has been described as a black man who is approximately 5-foot-10. He can be seen in a light grey Nike hooded sweatshirt and black Adidas track pants. Police said he was also wearing a mask at the time of the shooting.
The logos on the suspect's sweatshirt and track pants can be seen in the photos released Friday, and other images show a clearer shot of the car he was seen driving at the time.
Investigators said the suspect is considered armed and dangerous. Witnesses are asked not to approach him, and to call 911 immediately to report any sightings of the man or the car.
