Update: Police Announce $50K Reward in 2012 Murder

The 26-year-old man was gunned down in the Weston Road and Denarda Street area on October 30th, 2012.

Police are offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible for the murder of a 26-year-old Toronto man.

Detectives say Leonard Charles Fullerton, also known as ``Chris'' or ``Curlz'' _ was fatally shot on Oct. 30, 2012, in in the Weston Road and Eglinton Avenue area.

Det. Leslie Dunkley says the killing was ``a public execution of a human being who was gunned down on the street corner in the presence of innocent civilians'' and near a daycare centre.

Dunkley says he believes there are a number of witnesses with ``crucial information'' about the case who also know who the shooter is but have not come forward.

Police have released surveillance video of a small, four-door silver car, possibly a Honda or Nissan, that was captured near the scene.

Police say the video shows the suspect vehicle backing into a laneway and then parking before a man exits the vehicle seconds before the shooting.

The suspect is described as a black male with light complexion and about six feet tall. He has a thin build and was wearing a dark, hooded wool jacket with white accents.

Fullerton's family joined police at a news conference announcing the reward on Thursday, including his father Leaford Fullerton, who described his pain at losing his only son.
