Without any reason this man shot Kartik multiple times, killing him on the spot,” Toronto police Service chief James Ramer told reporters. Why the cold-blooded murder happens on a fateful day.

Sergeant Terry Browne of the Homicide Department, Toronto Police, said Kartik was shot multiple times and was in a defenseless position the whole time. “ The suspect that we are referring to for both shootings, has no criminal background.
