Toronto Police have released new information about the Lawrence Heights shooting.

Just after midnight on July 8, police say two black men pulled up in a silver car to 11 Flemginton Road. They got out of the vehicle and opened fire. They shot three people from a close range.  A 31-year-old supply teacher named Abshir Hassan died and two others were injured. The wounded victims were an 18-year-old female and a 22-year-old male, who knew each other and Hassan.

Police say they believe the vehicle was a BMW and have watched hours of surveillance footage, but are unable to identify the license plate.   

On Saturday afternoon they canvassed the community, knocking door-to-door and handing out flyers in hopes of speaking to more witnesses.

Several witnesses have already come forward, but no motive has been determined.

Detective Sergeant Steve Ryan is confident in the investigation. "We will get them. It's just a matter of time," he said.
