Dwayne McMillan became the 82nd homicide in Toronto in 2018 Tuesday night. He was the 43rd person to die by the gun.

Dwayne McMillan was simply doing his job — working security at a marijuana dispensary near York University — when he was gunned down in a botched robbery.

Toronto Police have since arrested two suspects for the Oct. 2 murder, but two unidentified killers have yet to be caught.

And the family of the victim, 44, hopes people are fed up with the gun violence in the city and come forward to help investigators.

“My family has been shattered,” Sandra Cooke, McMillan’s heartbroken mother, said at a news conference Tuesday.

“He wasn’t just my son; he was a father, partner and brother,” she said. “And I want someone to look at my family and say that they’re sorry for their actions.”

McMillan, a father of four, was working security at the illegal dispensary in an industrial plaza on Keele St., south of Steeles Ave. W., when he was killed just after 9:30 p.m.

“I believe it was a robbery gone bad,” Homicide Det. Paul Worden said.

Investigators have now released security camera footage of McMillan’s brief but deadly encounter with the four bandits.
