The York Regional Police Homicide Unit have arrested and charged four men and have issued an arrest warrant for a fifth in an ongoing homicide investigation in the City of Markham.

On Monday, November 7, 2016, at approximately 5:40 a.m., York Regional Police responded to a report of a man lying on the side of the road on Old Kennedy Road just north of Steeles Ave.  He was transported to hospital where he was pronounced deceased. The victim was identified as 50-year-old Kong Wu WANG of the City of Toronto. The cause of death was determined to be a gunshot wound.

The investigation has revealed that in the early morning hours of November 7, 2016, the accused were waiting for two victims in a parking lot on Midland Avenue north of Finch Avenue in the City of Toronto. The first victim was grabbed by the accused, bound, forced into a vehicle and held against his will. The second victim was shot by the accused and while they were attempting to force him into the same vehicle, the first victim managed to escape and sought help. The suspects fled the area with the victim they had shot, who was later identified as Mr. WANG, and dropped him at the side of the road where he was located.

On Thursday, February 23, 2017, three of the five suspects were arrested in the City of Markham and on Tuesday, February 28, 2017, a fourth suspect was arrested in the Town of Whitby. One suspect remains at large and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.
