Yan Jing Death – Obituary : Three suspects are facing charges in connection to St. Catharines public school shooting that left a 32-year-old man dead.

The victim was found lying on the ground at Oakridge Public School on Marsdale Drive at about 8:30 p.m. April 12th.

He was transported to the city hospital hospital, where he died afterwards.

Investigators believe the victim, Yan Jing, was killed in a currency exchange robbery after being allegedly lured out to convert Canadian cash into Chinese money, reports said.

“In these incidents, the victims arrange with the suspects to exchange Canadian currency for Chinese currency at what they believed would be a cheaper rate than offered by financial institutions,” investigators said in a release.

When the victims arrive at the meeting location, they are robbed of the money that they brought to exchange.”

Two people, a 22-year-old from Richmond Hill and a 20-year-old from Toronto, are facing first-degree murder charges while a 25-year-old Toronto-area man is facing a charge of accessory after the fact to murder and breach of probation.
