UPDATE: Police have identified the man who was shot and killed outside of an LCBO on Sunday evening. The details of the dispute are still under investigation.

Jakub Sudomericky, 21, was killed after a short verbal altercation that ended in a short chase within the parking lot.

Gunshots were heard and Sudomericky was found on the ground with one shot wound to his body. He was later brought to hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.

“The suspect fled the scene in a vehicle and a civilian witness passed the licence plate of the vehicle on to police through a 911 call,” Det. Amanda Thornton told media on Monday.

“Responding officers located the vehicle within eight minutes of the shooting and less than two kilometres away from the scene.”

A 20-year-old Toronto man, identified as Michael Roberts, has been charged with first degree murder. The victim and the suspect did not know one another.

Who other people were arrested, but will be released and will not face charges related to the incident. Both the suspect and the victim were wearing masks inside the LCBO, said officer Thornton.

She said any verbal altercation inside the LCBO did not appear to be of any high intensity.

“Based on the video I've reviewed, I wouldn't say there was any intensity to it at all,” Thornton said. “We are looking for witnesses who were inside the store to come forward and tell us what they heard and what happened. We have spoken to a fair amount of people.”

A police source told CP24 that authorities are investigating a deadly Sunday shooting in a Scarborough LCBO parking lot which may have been caused by dispute over social distancing.

On Sunday around 5:30 pm, police were alerted of a shooting in the Danforth and Victoria Park Avenue Area.

Police arrived at the scene to find a 22-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound to his upper body. The man was sent from the LCBO parking lot to hospital, where he later died. He has yet to be publicly identified.

A silver Honda Civic was later stopped by police about 1.5 kilometers from the LCBO where the shooting took place. This was after witnesses told them that they saw three people flee the scene in the civic.

Police took the three suspects into custody, however it is not known at the time if they are facing charges.

CP24 heard from a witness that a dispute over social distancing took place inside the liquor store before continuing outside. Shortly after, shots were heard.

However, it was yet to be confirmed by homicide detectives if the dispute was in fact what was motivating the deadly shooting.

Police are at the scene reviewing surveillance video and collecting evidence. They found a knife but are unsure how it is connected to the shooting. Officers have not said if they've located the gun used in the shooting.

Witnesses who have not yet spoken to investigators are asked to contact the Toronto Police Service's homicide unit.
