Police search Vars property for gun used in 2012 murder

Ottawa police investigators descended on a field in Vars on Friday to search for the gun used in the murder of Levy Kasende outside his ex-girlfriend's Innes Road townhome in Blackburn Hamlet last August.

Kasende was standing outside his ex-girlfriend's residence when an SUV pulled up and an unidentified suspect shot and killed him before the vehilce sped off.

While a number of people were standing outside the house at the time of the shooting, no one could provide police with a positive ID of either the shooter or the driver.

The vehicle used in the shooting was a 2004 Mazda MPV. Forty-minutes after the shooting it was found after being set ablaze in a field on Rockdale Road near where investigators searched on Friday.

Forensics carried out on the bullet that killed Kasende indicated that it was fired from a .357 Magnum. Police renewed there search for the weapon after receiving a letter from a tipster in March.

Police said witnesses have been evasive and are not coming forward with information.
