21-year old Jamie Hagley of Mardi Gras, St Paul’s has been shot dead in Canada.

THE NEW TODAY understands that the shooting incident took place last week Thursday night in North York in the Canadian city.

Hagley, who migrated to Canada a few years ago was found dead at about 9:37 p.m. by police officers who were called to the area around a townhouse at Grandravine Drive and Driftwood Avenue following reports of a shooting.

According to reports in the Canadian media, the lawmen arrived to find a man suffering from life-threatening gunshot wounds and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Hagley’s family members in Grenada on Wednesday night held a prayer session for him at their home in Mardi Gras in-keeping with Christian traditions.

Detectives in Canada have issued an appeal to “any witnesses or those with dashcam or security camera footage of the area to contact them at 416-808-7400”.

“Anyone with information is asked to contact police or Crime Stoppers anonymously,” said one media report.

Hagley’s murder is Toronto’s 82nd homicide of the year.
