Police say Cook left his cell phone in a taxi cab. He then electronically tracked it to 1181 Highbury Avenue.

Upon arriving at that address with a relative, at about 5:15 AM, Cook and the relative approached a silver 2004 Mazda 6 four-door sedan that was occupied by three males. A discussion occurred about the phone.

While at this location, a male passenger exited the vehicle and walked away from the area.

Police say the vehicle started to drive away so the victim partially climbed onto and held the driver’s side door. The vehicle drove northbound on Highbury Avenue then turned east.  Shots were then fired.

Police responded and found the victim dead behind the plaza located on the southeast corner of Highbury Avenue and Huron Street.

Cook had sustained multiple gunshot wounds.

Within minutes, three males were seen leaving the area in a cab that was stopped by police.  Those males were taken into custody. These males were released from custody Monday Morning after it was determined that they were not involved.

A citizen called police after finding the victim’s cell phone in the area of Wyndham Crescent and Barker Street.

The suspects and the victim were not known to each other and the Cook was not known to the London Police Service.

Police say they’re currently looking for three males – the two that were in the vehicle at the time of the incident as well as the one that walked away from the Mazda 6 at 1181 Highbury Avenue North.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact London Police at 519-661-5670 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477).
