Ac­cused ‘armed and dan­ger­ous’

Al­leged trig­ger­man be­hind 83rd slay­ing of the year ID’d


A man­hunt is un­der­way for the al­leged killer of Toronto’s 83rd homi­cide vic­tim of 2018.

But if you see Amal Jones, don’t talk to him di­rectly or en­gage him in any way.

“He is con­sid­ered armed and dan­ger­ous,” warned Toronto Po­lice, who an­nounced Satur­day that a war­rant was out for Jones’ ar­rest for sec­ond-de­gree mur­der.

Their ad­vice?

“If lo­cated, con­tact 911 im­me­di­ately.”

The 19-year-old is wanted in the mur­der of El­liott Rei­dDoyle, 18, who was gunned down in broad day­light on Oct. 3 at at a strip mall at Birch­mount Rd. and Bo­nis Ave.

“We don’t be­lieve that they knew each other prior to the in­ci­dent and the shoot­ing was a re­sult of that in­ter­ac­tion that they had with each other,” vet­eran homi­cide Det. Les­lie Dunk­ley told me­dia Fri­day.

Jones is de­scribed as be­ing be­tween 5 feet 10 and 6 feet 2 inches tall, and has a slim build, black hair in corn­rows tied at the back, and was wear­ing a dark-coloured track­suit.

“I urge the sus­pect in this case to con­tact a lawyer and turn him­self in,” Dunk­ley told the me­dia Fri­day. “It’s just a mat­ter of time be­fore we lo­cate you.”

It seems Jones was cap­tured on a store’s sur­veil­lance video.


Now the video and his pic­ture are out there for all to see.

Th­ese im­ages should help the pub­lic of­fer tips and clues.

But re­mem­ber, with the se­ri­ous al­le­ga­tion against this sus­pect, and that he’s likely car­ry­ing a gun, just call po­lice and let them han­dle it.

Bet­ter yet, Jones, the jig is up.

Be a man and turn your­self in.

A man po­lice have iden­ti­fied as Amal Jones is seen on a se­cu­rity cam­era shortly af­ter the Oct. 2 mur­der.
