Toronto a day on the life 9

What I learned about the city this week
By Kris Scheuer

Toronto is a safe place, for the most part, for a city of its size of 2.6 million.
But it’s dangerous if you work in a kitchen or are already in jail.
There were two separate and unrelated murders on Nov. 7, according to police reports.

New Generation Sushi is a popular restaurant on Bloor near Brunswick in the Annex that I have frequented many times.
On Saturday Nov. 7 around 11 pm police responded to a call of a man being stabbed. A police news release states that the allegations are: the victim and accused work together at the restaurant, the men got into an argument that escalated and then one man was stabbed and taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Ming Yang, 27, was fatally stabbed and a postmortem done on Nov. 9 determined that cause of death was a stab wound to the chest.
Xu Wang, 25, has been charged with second degree murder.
At the time he was Toronto’s 50th murder of the year. The Don Jail is where Jeff Munro, 32, called home for now as he was serving time there. On Nov. 7, just before 8 pm police were called as Munro was unconscious. He was pronounced dead at the scene, according to a police news release.
A postmortem determined the cause of death was blunt impact facial trauma.
Three men, Troy Victor Campbell, 24, Osman Sarikay, 22, and Kevin Andre Veiro, 21, have all been charged with first degree murder.
