Murdered Teen's Football Coach Remembers Him
The football coach and principal of a 15-year-old boy who was gunned down in an apartment building in Regent Park on Friday are remembering the teen.
Tyson Bailey's football coach Norm Davis and Central Tech principal Sheryl Freeman held a news conference at the school on Monday morning to talk about the teen who had a smile that lit up the room and the faces of everyone around him.
The grade 10 student was found bleeding in the stairwell of a Toronto Community Housing building on Whiteside Place, in the Dundas & River area on Friday afternoon. He had been shot 4 times. Bailey was rushed to hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
Bailey's number 7 jersey will be signed by his teammates and given to his mother.
Grief counsellors are at the school to offer their support to the students.
Meanwhile, cops returned to the building Sunday to search a unit on the 13th floor, where he was found. Bailey didn't live in the building though his home was nearby.
Police say he wasn't known to them and that nothing points to any gang involvement.
Police are looking for 2 persons of interest in the case:
-a tall, skinny white man, 25-30 years old with a pock-marked face.
-a black man, shorter than the first , also 25-30 years old, wearing a black jacket at the time of the shooting.
