PAKISTANI-CANADIAN Naveed Dada, 59, was among the five deceased victims of the December 18 active shooter incident at a condominium building in the City of Vaughan in Ontario.

He was a real estate agent and, according to his Facebook Page, an avid cricket fan. Dada was a condo board member.

York Regional Police released the names of the deceased victims on Tuesday. The other deceased victims were Rita Camilleri, 57; her partner Vittorio Panza, 79; previous condo board member Russell Manock, 75, and his wife Helen, 71.

A sixth victim, a 66-year-old woman, remains in hospital with serious injuries. She has been identified as Doreen Di Nino, the wife of board member John Di Nino.

The incident occurred because of a dispute between the condo board and the gunman that had been reportedly going on for years.

On Sunday, December 18 at approximately 7:20 p.m., police were called to a residential building located on Jane Street, north of Rutherford Road, for a report of an active male shooter who had shot several victims.

When police arrived, an interaction occurred between the officers and a male subject and the subject was shot. Francesco Villi, 73, was pronounced deceased at the scene. The Special Investigations Unit has invoked its mandate and is investigating this portion of the incident.

The investigation is active and ongoing.
