Police in London, Ont., say the slaying of an 18-year-old man over the weekend highlights the risks involved with tracking missing cellphones using mobile apps.
Jeremy Cook was shot multiple times behind a strip mall in the northeast part of London early Sunday.
After losing his cellphone in a taxi, he used a tracking application to follow it to the strip mall at Highbury Avenue and Huron Street, police said.
Cook and a relative approached a silver 2004 Mazda with three suspects inside at approximately 5:15 a.m. on Sunday, police said. The car began to drive away and Cook grabbed hold of the door, at which point he was shot multiple times.
Police say the three suspects fled, eventually crashing into a pole and a fence before abandoning their vehicle a few blocks to the west, near the city’s Ed Blake Park.
Cook’s cellphone was located near where the suspects’ vehicle was abandoned.
Investigators are now looking for three black male suspects between the ages of 18 and 21.
One man was last seen wearing a white shirt with a black design. A second suspect is described as having very short hair and was wearing a black jacket or shirt, along with a fitted a hat. And the third suspect is described as having a slim build and was wearing a blue shirt and a black hat.
