New CCTV photos show Woodbridge shooting suspect, licence plate
Police have released a series of clear security camera photos taken at the scene of a deadly shooting in Woodbridge two days ago.
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.
Police said they have identified the vehicle as a stolen 2011 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 man entered Moka Espresso Bar on Islington Avenue in Woodbridge, Ont. on Wednesday morning, shortly after 8 a.m. The man entered the building "with a purpose," police said, before firing a gun several times at those inside the cafe. He then got into a dark-coloured compact car and fled the scene.
Police said he was last seen heading south on Islington Avenue.
Maria Voci, 47, and Christopher DeSimone, 24, were killed in the attack. Two other men were rushed to hospital. One of the injured men has been identified as Rocco Di Paola, a CEO of a Vaughan, Ont. insurance company.
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.
