It was a sunny Saturday evening when 17-year-old Jonathan Davis decided to walk from a parkette to his nearby apartment and change his shoes.
It was warm, and a group of people were people [sic] lining up for an ice cream truck nearby.
Then the shooting began.
Peel Regional Police Chief Chris McCord described families running from a "hail of bullets," with more than 100 shell casings recovered at the scene.
Police say they are looking for at least seven shooters, armed mostly with semi-automatic weapons.
Five others were injured, and Davis, who police say was an innocent bystander, was killed steps away from his home.
McCord said Sunday that the intended targets of the shooting were preparing to film a rap video at the time of the shooting, but Alincy said Davis was not involved at all.
"He was not a part of a gang, he had nothing to do with the music video," she said.
In the neighbourhood where Davis lived, grief over his death is coupled with fear of more violence.
"I have a young son, and I'm telling him, after school come straight home," said Alincy. "I'm afraid."
How does this happen in gun-controlled Canada, with the use of restricted weapons by individuals with (presumably) no firearms licenses?
Meanwhile the politicians weigh in:
"There are solutions to this gun violence… if the government would listen to us," Sherman said, citing a summer basketball competition that was started in the community to keep young people busy.
It's solutions that are now top of mind among politicians, both local and federal.
Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie said the incident was "a call for us to let us know that we can and should do more."
Oh yeah? Like restricting handguns and requiring gun licensing?
You're not going to win this with basketball games. That much I can guarantee.
