Another Shooting Murder Rocks Toronto Community Housing

Man murdered in Cabbagetown is brother of Eaton Centre shooting victim

The latest victim of this past 

week of gun violence to hit 

Toronto Streets left the bother of 

Nirmalendran, 22, who died in 

last summer's Eaton Centre 

shooting, he is seen in this photo 

from Twitter.

Like most other shootings, The man shot at a Toronto Community Housing property which is a seniors’ home. It happened Thursday night and the victim is the brother of a man who died in hospital after last summer’s Eaton Centre shoot out.
Det. Sgt. Terry Browne said 21-year-old Nisan Nirmalendran was killed at Thursday night around 11 p.m. at Winchester Square, at 55 Bleecker St. Nisan is the brother of Nixon Nirmalendran, 22, who died in hospital nine days after being shot in the downtown shopping mall food court in June, 2012.
Browne said there’s nothing he's aware of to suggest the two events are connected.

It’s so far unclear whether the shooting occurred inside Winchester Square, or just outside. But residents said they heard gunshots shortly after 11 p.m. and shattered glass was left in the lobby Friday afternoon, which is not surprising because it's a known fact that if you live in one of the properties of TCHC that is on their dump list, it takes awhile to get any repairs or clean up done.

Police could be seen talking to residents just inside the home early in the afternoon.
“It sounded like a cannon,” said one 66-year-old resident.
Peter, who declined to give his last name, said he heard seven shots as he was trying to read in his 14th floor apartment. He said he called police and came downstairs to see some commotion, police officers spilling into the lobby near Carlton and Sherbourne Sts.
Early information from police and EMS was the victim was died of multiple gunshot wounds, including one to his chest. He was pronounced dead at St. Michael’s Hospital.
Const. Tony Vella said no suspect information was immediately available.
TCHC spokeswoman Sinead Canavan said she believes security footage captured the shooting and staff members are assisting police.
