Shooting Victim Identified

Police have identified the homicide victim connected with last Friday’s shooting at a prom after-party in Whitchurch-Stouffville. 18-year old Rizwaan Abookbabr of Vaughan was killed at around 4am at a home on Bloomington Rd. E. near Highway 48. The house was being rented as an Airbnb. About 30 minutes after a 9-1-1 call was made two teens were arrested in the area; they’ve been charged with weapons offences but police will not say if the arrests are in any way connected to the shooting. Authorities are still appealing for witnesses to come forward.
