Toronto police have issued a composite sketch of a suspect in the hopes of solving a shooting death

Paul Choi:

Toronto police have released a composite sketch of a suspect in the hopes of solving a shooting murder that happened on city streets last summer. They say this man lives in the east end of the city.

On Sunday, May 8, 2005, Sasha Bailey, 22, was with several acquaintances outside a Pizza Pizza restaurant near Danforth and Pape Aves. when he became involved in an argument with a number of unknown males, police said.

Shots were fired and Bailey was struck and killed.

At a news conference this morning, Toronto police homicide detectives unveiled a composite sketch of a suspect nicknamed “Woo” in the hopes that anyone with information will come forward.

“We first asked the witnesses who were present at the time to come forward with any information, but unfortunately we received very little information,” said Det. Bill Vieira of Toronto police’s homicide squad.

“Recently, (Toronto police) made several arrests in relation to firearm-related offences. Information has been released from some of those arrests.

"That has all resulted in individuals coming forward with relation to this murder and that’s how we were able to come up with this person of interest.”

Police say the suspect is known to reside in the “east end of the city,” in the Scarborough area. He is described as male, with a dark complexion, 5'8", approximately 160 lbs., with a medium build, brown eyes, and black hair worn in cornrows.

While police suspect the man of having connections to firearms, Vieira would not say whether or not the suspect is affiliated with a specific gang or group.

“The impression I get is that people will know this individual,” he said. “And I’m hoping that…people will look at (the composite), recognize the face, and recognize the nickname and contact us and give us that information.”
