Last week, the York Regional Police Homicide Unit identified the victim as Rizwaan Abookbabar Wadee, 18, from Vaughan.
The after-party took place at 6336 Bloomington Road East, which is east of Ninth Line in the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville. The York Police responded to the party on May 3 around 4 a.m.
Someone called in to let the police know that there had been a shooting at the residence. When officers arrived the 18-year-old was found dead.
Many people were in attendance at the time of the shooting, who left prior to police arrival.
Investigators interviewed many attendees and are still looking for witnesses.
