Alleged crossbow killer is victim’s son

The city’s first ever crossbow killing is allegedly a case of patricide. Toronto Police said Friday.
Toronto Police confirmed the 52-year-old man who was shot in the back in a crowded Upper Beaches library Thursday is the father of the alleged killer.
“They are father and son,” Const. Tony Vella said Friday.
The victim, Si Cheng, of Toronto, was inside a public library on Main St., just south of Gerrard St. E., when he was hit in the back by a bolt from a crossbow shortly after 4 p.m., Vella said.
It’s alleged that Zhou Fang, 24, fired the fatal shot as women and children watched in horror.
The Ottawa resident was taken was taken into custody soon after.
Court documents show slain man had two previous domestic violence convictions.
Cheng assaulted his wife of 16 years, Nora Fang, at their Mintwood Dr. home on May 5, 2002 in the presence of the couple’s son Zhou Fang, and Nora’s 84-year-old mother, court documents stated.
A court synopsis of the incident indicated Cheng said: “I am the ruler of this house and everybody has to do what I say.”
He became involved in a physical fight with Nora and the worried mother-in-law intervened to end the conflict. Both Nora and her mom were treated for their minor injuries at Scarborough Grace Hospital and released.
Cheng pleaded guilty to assault with a weapon and received one additional day in jail on top of time already served plus three years probation.
The court also ordered that Cheng undergo anger management counselling and had a 10-year weapons prohibition.
Cheng was involved in another domestic dispute in August 1999 and he pleaded guilty to assault in June 2000 and received a suspended sentence and 12 months probation. No details were available on the that incident.
Cheng had other unrelated criminal convictions, including theft and fail to comply with probation.
Meanwhile, Zhou Fang looked solemn as he made a brief appearance at College Park court Friday morning.
He had dark circles under his eyes and wore an orange jail jumpsuit as he stood in the prisoner’s box. He bowed his head as Justice Lynette Stethem ordered him back to police custody until his next video appearance Dec. 8.
“You will be detained in custody until these matters are dealt with,” Stethem said.
Stethem ordered a publication ban on this case.
Anyone with information in the city’s 59th murder of the year is urged to call homicide detctives at 416-808-7400, or Crime Stoppers at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
Crossbow victim was father of suspect

The man shot dead with a crossbow Thursday afternoon was the father of the man charged with first-degree murder in the same case, police said Friday afternoon.
Si Cheng, 52, of Toronto, was shot inside an east-end library and pronounced dead at the scene, police said. The Main St. library, located just south of Gerrard St. E., was bustling with children and their parents when Cheng was shot around 4 p.m.
Zhou Fang, 24, of Ottawa, was arrested shortly after the attack and has been charged with first-degree murder. Cheng is also referred to in court documents as Si William Cheng.
Reached on Friday afternoon, Const. Tony Vella confirmed that the victim and suspect are father and son.
Fang made a brief court appearance Friday morning and was remanded in custody.
According to land registry documents, Si Cheng bought a house on Mintwood Dr., in North York, in October 2000 with someone named Cheng Mei Fang. The property was transferred to Cheng Mei Fang in April this year.
Next-door neighbour Allan Krett said a stocky man named William Cheng lived on the other side of his semi-detached home but was recently evicted.
Krett said Cheng moved in about a decade ago with his wife, who went by Nora, and a son named Peter, who was a teenager at the time. Cheng’s mother-in-law also apparently lived with the family.
But according to Krett, the couple’s marriage fell apart a few years ago. He said Cheng’s wife once told him her husband was violent towards her and had served time in prison. Police officers and prison officials have showed up at Krett’s door on at least a few occasions asking if he had seen Cheng.
“My understanding was that he was violent towards his wife, mother-in-law, and son and because of that, he was prosecuted and he did time,” Krett said. “Then prior to him coming out, they seemed to leave. They were frightened to be in the house and he moved back in.”
Krett said Cheng’s wife got possession of the house but was “frightened to come (home).” Cheng continued to live there alone, however, often coming and going at late hours and keeping mainly to himself, Krett said.
“He was really reclusive,” he said. “The grass wasn’t cut, neighbours were complaining and the place seemed to be unkempt.”
Krett said police came to Cheng’s home a few months ago to enforce his eviction. Cheng’s wife called Krett soon after to ask about the eviction; she has also sent him a few emails. She would not tell Krett where she was now living but the last time he spoke to her, she said she was in China.
At the library where Cheng was killed, staff working during the time of the incident will be off with pay until the branch reopens, Toronto Public Library spokeswoman Anne Marie Aikins said Friday. Staff and witnesses have also been offered group and crisis counselling.
Aikins said it is too soon to determine exactly when staff will return to work or when the branch will reopen. She said the police investigation will need to wrap up before cleaning can start.
There were fewer than 10 staff members, including librarians and administrative workers, at the branch at the time, Aikins said.
She said they immediately evacuated staff and the public rather than going into lockdown.
“They got out quickly and safely,” she said.
Aikins would not say whether the branch had security guards or cameras, but said security levels vary by branch size and neighbourhood. She said the branch’s safety protocols will be reviewed.
Vella said police have talked to many witnesses and interviews will continue Friday.
Grief counsellors will likely be sent to the library because of the number of people who witnessed the attack, he said.
“It’s definitely a very unique situation,” said Vella, “a first.”
He said the fact the shooting occurred in such a public place made it of particular concern.
Cheng was killed inside the library in front of a number of witnesses, including children who were there with their parents. No one else was injured.
Emergency medical services said the man had been shot in the back.
Homicide investigators questioned a number of witnesses. The suspect was held at 55 Division overnight and police were looking through surveillance video from the surrounding area.
Vella was unable to confirm rumours Thursday that the victim had been pepper sprayed before being shot.
Linus Smith, who works at a restaurant across the street from the library, said she saw a middle-aged man with black hair and a dark jacket come out of the library with something in his hand and jump into a U-Haul truck just after 4 p.m. He appeared calm and drove away.
An elderly man was running after the suspect, she said, and wrote down the vehicle’s licence plate.
The suspect was arrested in Scarborough because police “quickly received information, they acted on that information,” said Vella.
Area residents expressed shock over the afternoon shooting.
The Main St. branch is Fran Pougnet’s library, her “little, quiet happy place.” She’s lived just down the street for a year and said she feels safe in the neighbourhood.
“At the library of all places!” she said, surveying the scene from the opposite sidewalk.
Tanya Lazarova was on the phone with her worried daughter about an hour after police arrived. Lazarova has been working at a salon across from the library for six years. “Very scary,” she said.
Jeffrey Smith, who lives in the area and works at a coffee shop across from the library, said he always feels safe walking in the neighbourhood.
“It’s usually quiet,” he said. “I’ve been here for four years, never seen anything like this.”

Crossbow slaying suspect is victim’s son
Ottawa man faces 1st-degree murder charge after death in library

The man charged with killing 52-year-old Si Cheng by shooting him with a bolt from a crossbow inside a Toronto library is the victim’s son, CBC News has learned.
Zhou Fang, 24, of Ottawa, was arrested shortly after the slaying Thursday and has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of his father, who lived in Toronto.
Police were called to the Toronto Public Library’s Main Street branch near the corner of Main and Gerrard Street East in the city’s east end just after 4 p.m.
Cheng was pronounced dead at the scene.
Witnesses said that they saw a man approach Cheng, who was sitting on a bench in the library, and pepper-spray him. He was then shot, either in the face or the back, witnesses said.
Police officers saw a man run north on Main Street after the shooting. He jumped into a U-Haul rental truck and drove off. Police tracked the truck and arrested the driver.
Although the father-son relationship has been confirmed to CBC News, police have not released any information on a motive.
“It was not a random attack,” said Toronto police spokesman Const. Tony Vella.
The news came as a surprise to Gerard Legault, who lives in the same Ottawa apartment building as Fang. Legault last saw Fang in the elevator about a week ago, but said Fang kept to himself.
“Just a quiet person, doesn’t say hello, doesn’t say much … he’s on his own,” Legault said.
“I don’t know if he has any family there, he’s new in the building.”
It’s believed to be the first time a crossbow has been used in a homicide in Toronto.
Fang appeared in Ontario Court of Justice at College Park on Friday morning and was remanded in custody until Dec. 8.

Son charged with murder in father’s crossbow death
Updated: Fri Dec. 03 2010 9:43:31 PM
Police have charged the son of a man killed in a bizarre and fatal crossbow shooting at a Toronto library with first-degree murder, authorities confirmed Friday.
The suspect, 24-year-old Zhou Fang of Ottawa, appeared in a Toronto court on Friday morning and was remanded in custody until Dec. 8.
Fang stared straight ahead and spoke softly when asked by the judge whether he understood the proceedings.
The victim in the shooting, 52-year-old Si Cheng, of Toronto, was shot in the back at the Main Street Library in Toronto’s east end. The victim is the father of the accused.
Earlier, police had said the accused and the victim knew each other, adding that it was not a random attack.
The library was filled with afternoon patrons at the time of the attack, many of whom witnessed a man calmly enter the building and fire a crossbow.
“There were a number of people inside and a number of people have been taken to various police stations to be questioned,” Const. Tony Vella said late Thursday.
A witness reportedly got the licence plate number of a vehicle leaving the scene. Fang was arrested a short time after the incident near Phenix Drive and Hollis Avenue, which is southeast of Danforth Avenue and Birchmount Road. That location is about three kilometres east of the crime scene.
There were reports that the shooter may have used pepper spray before firing the crossbow.
Paramedics pronounced the victim dead at the scene.
The man’s body was removed from the library on a stretcher overnight. The arrow was still protruding from his body, which was covered with a sheet.
Crossbows are not subject to the same restrictions as guns and can typically be purchased without the license or certificates required for firearms. On its website the RCMP said only crossbows that are less than 50 centimetres in length and can be fired with one hand are prohibited.
It’s not clear which type of crossbow was used in the murder.
At the time of the shooting, area resident Linus Smith was sitting in a restaurant across the street. She saw a man leave the library with something in his hand, get into a U-Haul van and drive off, she said.
“He came out of the library, he was calm, he went into the U-Haul and he drove off,” she said. “He didn’t speed off or anything, he just drove.”
Vella said it was the first time he had been involved in a homicide investigation involving a crossbow.
“You hear about shootings with guns or knives involved, but definitely a crossbow is a unique situation,” Vella said.
Toronto Public Library said the Main Street branch would remain closed on Friday. Support and counselling will be provided to staff and patrons affected by the gruesome incident.
The incident isn’t the first homicide involving a crossbow in Canada. In 2007, a 26-year-old man was accused of murdering his mother with a crossbow in Quebec.
