One arrested, two more wanted in public Rexdale ‘execution’


TORONTO – Police have arrested one man and are looking for two others –including the man accused of pulling the trigger – in connection with the public murder of Neeko Mitchell.

Mitchell was gunned down at the North Kipling Community Centre in November.

Police announced Thursday morning that Tyrone Michael Knott, 28, was arrested Monday and charged with accessory after the fact. Police believe he assisted Reshane Hales Wilson, 23, immediately after the murder.

A Canada-wide warrant was issued for Hales Wilson in January. He has not been arrested and police said Thursday he could be in Toronto, anywhere in Canada or abroad.

“There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that wherever he is, he continues to pose a risk to the public,” Toronto Police Sgt. Brian Borg said at a press conference Thursday afternoon.

“There is absolutely no doubt that Mr. Hales Wilson has and is being aided by others that know he’s wanted for murder.”

Police also issued an arrest warrant for Kashana Duncan, 28, who is wanted for accessory after the fact.

Mitchell, 25, was at the community centre to watch a basketball tournament on Nov. 24, 2013.

“He was sought out by others at the tournament and for all intents and purposes sought out and killed execution style,” Borg said.

Mitchell was pronounced dead at the community centre and “had no chance of survival,” Borg said.

Borg also issued a warning to anyone who may try and help Hales Wilson evade police, saying they “are placing themselves and their livelihoods in serious risk.”
