Shoaib Patel from Wiring and Service, was struck with a bullet.

Bilal Patel from Overhead, bullets just nearly missed him and he witnessed his Brother and close friends being shot.

All three of our Brothers are very mentally traumatized by this horrible tragedy.

Shoaib and Bilal Patel would like everyone to know the Go Fund Me has been set up for our Brother Atif Sufi.

Shoaib and Bilal Patel would like everyone to please donate to Atif who is the most seriously injured and will be off work for a very long time.

On April 16th at 1 am in Scarborough, a group of close friends, approximately 15 people, just finished attending their Night Prayers in the neighbourhood they grew up in, just blocks away from their childhood homes at Markham and Lawrence in Scarborough. After prayers concluded, they left together and were gathering as a group deciding on a location to get some food nearby. All of a sudden, from nowhere, a car drives by firing several bullets at the group.
Thankfully, there were no fatalities. However, the injuries, both physically and mentally traumatic, will be long-lasting. Months, perhaps years of recovery time, will be needed.

Let’s all please come together to help.

Please donate to the “Markham and Lawrence April 16th Tragedy” Go Fund Me.

Our Brothers and their families need our help and support.

Please donate!
