Police have identified the 17-year-old victim of a brazen broad daylight shooting in Scarborough this week as Zaybion Lawrence.
Lawrence, who was from Toronto, was shot at around 3:45 p.m. Wednesday near the corner of Gilder Drive and Eglinton Avenue East.
Paramedics rushed him to hospital, where he died of his injuries.
Two schools in the area – Jean Vanier Catholic and Grand Ravine Junior Public School – were briefly placed under restraining and security orders immediately after the shooting.
Anyone with information related to Zaybion’s death is urged to contact police or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers.
