Canada - Jane Creba, 15, dead, 6 hurt in Toronto street shooting, 26 Dec 2005
TORONTO - Gunfire erupted on a busy Toronto street filled with holiday shoppers Monday evening, killing a young woman and wounding six other people, police said.
They said two suspects were arrested and at least one gun was seized shortly after the 5:30 p.m. Monday violence near the popular Eaton Center shopping mall, a downtown zone popular with tourists.
Police said they were investigating if violence was gang related. They did not immediately disclose if the two people arrested were suspected of opening fire or how many attackers were involved. It also wasn't clear if the victims had been purposely fired on.
"I can't say which of the individuals have been targeted and which are accidental," Police Staff Sgt. Stan Belza said. "This is an extremely busy shopping day. There were a lot of people out there."

From June 2012:
Jane Creba’s tragic death outside the Eaton Centre on Boxing Day 2005 marked a turning point in Toronto’s crime history, a shocking display of indiscriminate violence in broad daylight...
A jury found Jorell Simpson-Rowe guilty of second-degree murder in 2008, and he was sentenced to life in prison with no parole for seven years. In 2009, drug dealer Jeremiah Valentine, who opened fire with a .357 Magnum, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, admitting in court that his gun probably fired the shots that killed Creba.
Louis Raphael Woodcock and Tyshaun Barnett were charged with second-degree murder. Both were found guilty of manslaughter and aggravated assault.
