Police said they received a call for a single vehicle collision on May 7, at around 11:55 a.m. in the Kipling Avenue and Longfield Road area.

When crews arrived they found the driver, Christopher Reid, suffering from gunshot wounds. Three days later Reid died in hospital.

Detectives later determined that Reids vehicle, a black Hyundai Elantra, was travelling behind the suspect vehicle for some time before it stopped in the middle of the road and Reid pulled up beside it.

Police say the driver of the suspect vehicle, a late model while BMW X6, then opened fire. Reids vehicle travelled about 150 metres from the scene of the shooting before crashing into a fence and ended up on the lawn of a home.

Blackwood is described as five foot eight and 160 pounds with a medium build and a large mole on the tip of his nose. He has a tattoo on his left shoulder with the words: “blood line famous money” and an image of a diamond, as well as a tattoo on his left forearm of flowers.

A Canada-wide warrant has been issued for the arrest of a 43-year-old man who police allege shot and killed Christopher Reid in broad daylight back in May.

Reid was found without vital signs, suffering from gunshot wounds, inside a vehicle that had veered off Longfield Road near Kipling Avenue shortly before noon on May 7.

Shortly after, homicide detectives released the series of events they believe led Reid to veer off the roadway, and surveillance camera footage of a suspect vehicle.

Investigators believe Reid was travelling about 12 to 14 seconds behind the suspects vehicle prior to the crash, near Highway 27 and Eglinton Avenue.

The suspect vehicle suddenly came to a stop in the middle of the road and Reids vehicle pulled up alongside.

Reid, then critically wounded, travelled further down Longfield Road before he veered off the roadway, crashed into a fence and spun out onto the lawn of a home in the area.

Police described the white, four-door newer model BMW X6 as distinctive, but provided few other details about the gunman.

On Friday, more than five months since Reids death, police announced that they seized the vehicle and identified a suspect in the case.

He has been described as five-foot-eight, 160 pounds with a medium build and a large mole on the tip of his nose.

Police say has several tattoos, including one on his left shoulder of the words blood line famous money with an image of a diamond, and one on his left forearm of flowers.

Its possible he goes by any one of these aliases: Anthony White, Randy Richards, Jason Michael Carter, or Stitch Blackwood.

Anyone who knows of Blackwoods whereabouts is being asked to call Toronto police or Crime Stoppers anonymously.
