A family friend says a teenage boy who died after gunfire erupted outside an apartment complex west of Toronto over the weekend was a caring and responsible sibling.

Selma Alincy has started an online fundraising campaign to help Jonathan Davis’s family make funeral arrangements for the 17-year-old, a high school student who she said was also learning the electrical trade.

The goal is to raise 15-thousand dollars and as of yesterday the fund stood at 56-hundred.

Davis was on his way to his father’s home Saturday evening but headed back to change his shoes, she writes.

She says that’s when the shots rang out and Davis was hit by a bullet outside his home.

Police have not publicly identified the teen killed in the shooting but have described him as an innocent bystander.

Five others were wounded in the incident, including a 13-year-old girl, a 16-year-old boy and two other 17-year-old boys.

Peel Regional Police are still looking for at least seven suspects.
