Double Murder Committed With An Illegal Gun: Police

Saturday June 21, 2008 Staff
The tragedy has sparked a new fervour to end gun violence in the GTA. And although many have called for a complete handgun ban, police say the latest murders were committed with illegal firearms.
Analysis of eight shell casings found at the scene where Dylan Ellis and Oliver Martin were shot June 13 while sitting in their SUV has found that the bullets came from a gun that wasn't legally registered.
A candlelight vigil for the victims of the shooting was held Friday night, one week after the brutal crime. There, friends gathered to remember the two men, who were lifelong friends. They were in the neighbourhood of Richmond Street and Walnut Ave. after visiting friends when they were shot.
Police say a YouTube video that was posted to help generate information in the case is the fourth-most-watched in Canada, receiving over 2,500 views.
