A man was shot and killed outside a house being used for a music video shoot for reggae singer Sean Paul last night near Toronto.
Ramesh Christie, was shot in the abdomen at around 8:30 p.m. in Vaughan, about an hour away from Toronto. He was pronounced dead at Etobicoke General Hospital.
The gunman and another person fled the scene in a black Mercedes SUV, according to reports. Christie was sitting in a white Range Rover when the shooting occurred.
There is no official word whether or not Christie was involved with the video shoot, or if it was just a coincidence that he was killed nearby.
“I was deeply saddened to hear that a shooting occurred last night in the vicinity of my video shoot,” Sean Paul said in a statement. “Although I did not witness the incident, my sympathy and prayers go out to the victim’s family and to those who have been affected by this tragedy. We must overcome violence and hatred. All life is precious. Respect.”
