An investigation is continuing into a shooting that occurred in downtown Kitchener last week, resulting in a man’s death.
Isaiah Macnab, 20, was last seen at 11:20 a.m. last Thursday, sitting outside of Salvation Army New Beginnings building on King Street East, when he was shot multiple times.
A Waterloo Regional Police spokesperson said the police believe the shooting was a targeted attack and they are still seeking the suspect vehicle.
“We are still looking for suspects. Two people were seen leaving in a white Mercedes four-door vehicle, said Cherri Greeno. “We are now trying to locate the vehicle and asking anyone who may have any information concerning the location of the vehicle or the suspects that were in it to please contact us immediately. We’re also encouraging people not to approach the suspects — we do consider them armed and dangerous — but still to call 911 immediately.”
The Mercedes was last seen in Mississauga in the Erin Mills area.
Greeno spoke this week about the importance of public awareness regarding prohibited weapons.
“Educate yourself on them,” she said. “The issue comes when prohibited weapons fall into the wrong hands and are used for criminal purposes. In terms of this investigation, we do have one victim that was shot in broad daylight. It’s obviously a concern for us and we are currently trying to locate the suspects involved in that shooting to get the community involved and give the family some closure,” Greeno said.
The funeral will be held on Thursday, Sept. 27, in the chapel at Henry Walser Funeral Home.
Police are asking anyone who has seen the suspect vehicle to call 519-570-9777 ext. 8666 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
