John Wheeler was waiting for a ride to work at around 3:36 a.m. at the building on Danforth Road and Eglinton Avenue East when he was shot from behind.
He was taken to hospital where he died of his injuries.
At a news conference Friday afternoon, homicide detective Sgt. Ted Lioumanis described Wheeler as a hard working man who was “at the wrong place at the wrong time.”
“This was a horrific, cowardly, uncalled for act against Mr. Wheeler. He did not deserve this. Nobody deserves to die, to get shot and die in our city,” Lioumanis said, adding that witnesses have been co-operating with police.
Earlier on Friday, police released a series of four security camera videos of the suspects and Wheeler’s last moments in an effort to identify and locate the suspects.
The first video shows the vehicle driving by the building. The second video shows two men dressed in black and wearing face masks, one openly carrying a long rifle or shotgun, in front of the building.
In the two final videos, Wheeler can be seen first exiting the building and then, as he is standing by the side of the road, a gunman walks up behind him and shoots him in the back.
