Four men have been arrested six months after a brazen shooting was caught on camera near Jane and Finch.

The incident happened back on June 10 around 3:30 in the morning.

Toronto police say a group of people were approached by three masked men while in a parking lot in the area of Jane Street and Steeles Avenue West.

The three men demanded cash and property from the group, holding them at gunpoint while going through their pockets. A 29-year-old was then struck in the face with a gun, causing the weapon to discharge.

The victim fell between two parked cars and the three suspects then stood over him and emptied their guns, striking him numerous times before fleeing the scene on foot. Police said the victim sustained multiple gunshot wounds.

Surveillance footage captured the incident and was released to the public at the beginning of November.

Following an extensive investigation, the suspects were identified and arrested. All four are facing several charges.

Ahmed Siyad, 27, Olad Olad, 20, Mohamud Duale, 28, and Ahmed Dirire, 26 all from Toronto are facing the following charges:

1. Conspiracy to Commit Murder

6. three counts of Possess Restricted or Prohibited Firearm knowingly without Holding a License and Registration Certificate
7. three counts of Robbery with Firearm

9. Discharge Firearm

They are scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 19.
