CityNews | posted Friday, Aug 26th, 2016

Two years after an innocent bystander was shot dead outside of a downtown nightclub, Toronto police are expected to release more information in the case.

Jelena Loncar, 32, had just finished a bartending shift at Hunters Landing restaurant on Aug. 26, 2014. She was standing outside C Lounge on Wellington Street, just west of Spadina Avenue, when she was hit by a bullet around 3 a.m.

She died later in hospital.

At the time, police said the man they believed to be the intended target was shot six times while running toward Spadina. Police said he was co-operating with the investigation.

About 20 minutes before the shooting, three cars had been in the parking lot of the House of Lancaster strip club on The Queensway when there was an exchange of gunfire.

The drivers went straight from there to Wellington Street, police said.

Police are expected to release more information as well as a reward on Friday.
