TORONTO -- A six-year-old boy and his mother were "exactly in the line of gunfire" as Toronto rapper Houdini was shot to death in broad daylight, a homicide detective said Thursday.
Police have released surveillance camera footage of what the detective called an "active gunfight" on a downtown sidewalk.
The little boy ducks into the vestibule here while these associates are returning gunfire to the shooter, Det.-Sgt. Andy Singh said during a news conference while the video played on the large monitor beside him.
The little boy was exactly in the line of gunfire when it first started and the family, which can be clearly seen in the background, were in the receiving end of the volley of shots.
