Man wanted in fatal daylight shooting of stranger surrenders

Elliot Reid-Doyle’s promising life was snuffed out in less than a minute.

It took longer for cops to nab the 18-year-old’s accused killer, but nab him they did.

Amal Jones, 19, surrendered to police at 42 Division on Sunday around 6:30 p.m. He has been charged with second-degree murder.

The murder of Reid-Doyle crossed a dreary threshold in this violent year as Toronto is poised in the next few weeks of eclipsing its all-time homicide record.

Reid-Doyle was the 83rd homicide of 2018. And his violent death occurred during the busy lunch hour in a plaza at Bonis Ave. and Birchmount Rd. on Oct. 3 at 1:30 p.m.

The young man’s murder was not a targeted hit. Cops say the two men did not know one another.

“We don’t believe that they knew each other prior to the incident and the shooting was a result of that interaction that they had with each other,” homicide Det. Leslie Dunkley told media on Friday.

That interaction took less than a minute.

The incident led to a brief lockdown at two high schools in Scarborough.

Toronto Police say Jones — whom they earlier had issued a warrant for his arrest — is being held in custody.

He was scheduled to appear in 1911 Eglinton Ave. E. court on Monday at 10 a.m.
