Toronto police held a news conference along with the sister of a woman shot and killed outside a downtown Toronto nightclub earlier this year, who broke down in tears on Wednesday while police appealed for the public’s help in the case.
32-year-old Jelena Loncar was standing near the C Lounge on Wellington Street and Spadina Avenue on August 26 at around 3:15 a.m. when she was shot amid a hail of gunfire, soon after which she died in a nearby hospital. Another victim shot by the same shooter, who is believed as the intended target, was also injured. Loncar’s sister, Lana Loncar, spoke briefly at the news conference on Wednesday and stressed that “I just want to let you know my sister was literally the nicest person in the world,” adding that “from the moment she woke up she had a smile from one side of her face to the other. She greeted everyone with a massive hug. I didn’t just lose a sister, I lost a best friend.”
