Raptors fan kicked out of game for heckling ref found shot to death
A Raptors fan who was kicked out of Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals two weeks ago was found shot to death in Toronto on Tuesday.
The fan, Sukh Deo, was described by the Vancouver Sun as a gangster. His uncle who spoke with the Sun said his nephew ran a trucking company with a friend.
Deo was killed when two men seen wearing construction vests opened fire on a white Range Rover in the middle of the afternoon in Toronto. At least 14 bullet holes were found on the driver side of the luxury SUV.
The Sun says Deo was a suspect in a continuing investigation in Vancouver. His brother was convicted in a 2005 kidnapping case, and his father is wanted by Interpol on drug smuggling charges.
Deo, 34, was said to be a huge Raptors fan. He was the fan who was ejected midway through the fourth quarter during the Raptors’ Game 4 win over the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals:
