Po­lice of­fer re­ward in fa­tal shoot­ing of preg­nant woman

Cape Breton Post - - News -

TORONTO – A year af­ter shots fired at a car killed a 33-yearold preg­nant woman, Toronto po­lice are of­fer­ing a re­ward of up to $50,000 for in­for­ma­tion lead­ing to the con­vic­tion of those re­spon­si­ble.

Candice Rochelle Bobb, of Mis­sis­sauga, Ont., was in a ve­hi­cle with three other peo­ple re­turn­ing from a bas­ket­ball game when the gun­fire erupted in a north­west Toronto neigh­bour­hood on May 15, 2016.

Bobb, who was sit­ting in the back seat, died in hospi­tal and her in­fant son was de­liv­ered by emer­gency C-sec­tion at 24 weeks, but died roughly a month later.

Po­lice have said any­one who is charged in Bobb’s shoot­ing will also be charged in the death of the baby.

Det.-Sgt. Mike Car­bone told a news con­fer­ence on Wed­nes­day in­ves­ti­ga­tors do not be­lieve Bobb was tar­geted, but that “some­thing in the move­ment” of the car be­fore the shoot­ing could have caused the ve­hi­cle to be tar­geted.

“We know some­one in the neigh­bour­hood knows some­thing,” Bobb’s mother, Jackie Weir, said. “We’re ask­ing each and ev­ery one to just search your heart. She could be your sis­ter. She could be your daugh­ter. Your friend.”
