A 30-year-old man is dead after a fatal shooting behind a city housing complex near Pape and Riverdale avenues early yesterday.

At around 1 a.m., a pregnant Latanya Burnett got out of bed to use the washroom when she heard her boyfriend open the door. He had been out with friends to celebrate his 30th birthday.

At that moment, she heard four or five shots go “kabang!” said Burnett, who lives in a unit at 30 Blake St. “A couple minutes later, I heard the last one. The last one, I knew, connected to something.”

Burnett ran downstairs to make sure her boyfriend, Conroy Stubbs, was safe.

It was then she heard two moans coming from the back of her unit. “That was when we knew someone was in our backyard,” Burnett said.

Police arrived around 1:30 a.m. and found the body a bit later.

Police yesterday identified the victim, but are not releasing his name until his family has been notified. A post-mortem has been scheduled for today.
