Police are asking for the public’s help in locating “three extremely dangerous individuals” wanted in the brutal shooting of a 28-year-old Toronto man over the long weekend.

Police released security video of the incident which took place on the underground parking ramp of a building at 18 Wellington Street West near Yonge Street on Sunday night.

The video shows two individuals chasing the victim, identified as Jaiden Jackson, down the ramp while opening fire on him. The driver of a car, described as a Honda Civic, also proceeds to shoot Jackson.

In total, the suspects appear to fire more than 20 shots at Jackson before they all get back into the car, reverse up the ramp andflee westbound, turning south onto Bay Street.

Detective Sgt. Gary Giroux of the Homicide Squad says they believe Jackson was targeted after arriving at a restaurant in the area with another woman. It was after they left the Pick 6 restaurant that a car, going the wrong way on Wellington, approached the pair and began chasing Jackson down into the parking garage.

Giroux says the woman is cooperating with the investigation.

Giroux is asking the public to pay close attending to the Honda Civic, which he described as a four-door model between the years of 2010 and 2012 with a sunroof.

Investigators say while Jackson had a history with Toronto police, their focus is on finding the suspects involved in this incident.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police or Crime Stoppers.
