Toronto police have identified a body found near a Scarborough home as belonging to 19-year-old Caxtons Kyeremeh.

The body was found early Tuesday morning by the home owner and was pronounced dead at the scene on Bon Echo Court.

A post-mortem examination has confirmed the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head.

Police did find a trail of blood near the scene, and it may suggest the victim ran in the direction of the home from the area around the nearby Malvern Town Centre shopping mall.

Kyeremeh has been described as well-known to police, regarding weapons, ammunition and drug-related offences.

The shooting is the 42nd homicide of the year, and the 25th gun-related death.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Sergeant Chris Buck at 416-808-7406, Detective Terry Browne at 416-808-7403 or Crime Stoppers at 416-222-TIPS.
