The killing has similarities to similar black-gang-related crimes in the US:
Bobb, who was from Malton, was shot just after 11 p.m. on May 15, 2016 while sitting in the back seat of a car parked in Etobicoke’s Rexdale neighbourhood. She had been returning from a basketball game in Scarborough, alongside her boyfriend, his cousin and a teammate.

When the car stopped near Jamestown Cres. and John Garland Blvd. to let out a passenger, the vehicle was hit by a stream of bullets. Bobb, who was sitting in the back seat, was the only occupant hit.

The victim was black and Etobicoke has a black population over 10%. Police records show blacks are overrepresented in violent crime in Canada.

Toronto Star:

For the grieving relatives of Candice Rochelle Bobb, it has been a year without the “life of the family,” without the young mother’s sense of humour and boisterous laugh, without answers.

“We know someone in the neighbourhood knows something,” said Jackie Weir, Bobb’s mother, in an emotional press conference at Toronto police headquarters Wednesday.

“We are asking each and everyone to just search your heart. She could be your sister, she could be your daughter.”
