Police Say Homicide Victims Shot Each Other

Investigators say Johnathan Khan and Shawn Chestnut-Reddick had beef with each other.

Homicide Investigators at Toronto Police say they know who killed Jonathan Stefan Khan and Shawn Chestnut-Reddick on the night of March 19th on Danforth Avenue near Woodbine Avenue.  They shot and killed each other after what investigators say was a "chance meeting" between the two as they walked along the Danforth from opposite directions. 

"Mr. Chestnut-Reddick and Mr. Khan are known to each other.  They travelled in the same circles and had mutual acquaintances.  On the evening of March 19th the two parties had an unintentional meeting in front of 2215 Danforth Avenue.  The two parties quarreled and had a physical altercation." said Homicide Detective Shawn Mahoney. 

That's when police say the two men each pulled out a gun and opened fire.  22-year-old Shawn Chestnut-Reddick was struck three times, while Jonathan Khan was hit by seven bullets.

Investigators say a third person walking with one of the men took the gun that had been used by Chestnut-Reddick before fleeing the scene.

They want to speak with that person.

Police praised the Danforth and Woodbine community for their assistance in the investigation saying security camera footage was also offered to investigators.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Shawn Mahoney at 416-808-7400, extension 77814, Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477), or go online to

    Now let them be a good example to other thug punks. Hehehe.

    I love the idea of duelling punks. Where are the reality show producers when you need one.

    Perfect outcome. Go to hell punks.

    Fantastic! I'd put all these scumbags in a room, each with guns, and let them kill each other. It's fast, efficient, and a very cost-effective way to eliminate garbage that doesn't deserve to live.

    At least we know that Khan won in the duel, since he shot the other guy 7 times. Not that it matters- cuz he's dead too.

    On a serious note, this situation can be summed up in one word: IDIOTS!
