Canadian police said Tuesday they are hunting for three men in the fatal shooting of a teenager who used an app to trace his lost phone to the trio.
Jeremy Cook, 18, had left his smartphone in a taxi and traced it electronically Sunday morning to a fast-food restaurant in London, Ontario, where he confronted three men in a car outside, local police Constable Ken Steeves told AFP.
“He approached the vehicle and it’s safe to say a conversation occurred, but the phone wasn’t turned over to him,” Steeves said.
When the three men attempted to leave, Cook grabbed onto the vehicle as it drove away, he said. Local media said Cook was accompanied by his sister.
