>>> Ceasefire negotiations for the war in ukraine may be back on the table, but only one that recognizes the current battlefield lines. [Speaking in Alternate Language] russian president vladomir putin told reporters peace talks must resume but based on common sense. In ukraine, president volodmyr zelenskyy visited a printing house that was destroyed by a russian missile attack that killed at least seven people. >>> A group with links to the terror group isis may be behind a fatal shooting at a restaurant near toronto three years ago. The jury heard in court today that the victim was likely targeted because he wanted to expose his alleged killer. Ctv's jon woodward is tracking the story. >> Reporter: it was a bloody scene in may of 2021 in chicken land. Five people shot, 25-year-old naim akl died in an attack that shocked the city of mississauga. >> I just don't understand. >> Senseless. Really is, senseless. >> Reporter: at the time, police released this surveillance video of the gunman before and after the shooting. Part of the investigation that led to the arrest of three men. And led the crown attorney to tell a jury in the first degree murder trial of the brampton courthouse that akl had gone to work in abbasi's warehouse. The crown attorney said you will hear evidence that akl became aware the group pledged allegiance to isis. They weren't just buying and selling products. They had pledged allegiance to isis and money was being used to finance that organization sent back home to further that cause. He was planning to go to the authorities and betray the others. It's our position that the others came up with a plan to prevent that from happening, a plan to kill naim akl and his family. The plan was put into action with nav entering the restaurant, pulling a handgun and shooting seven times in less than 18 seconds. Witnesses told the court they saw a slender man rush from the restaurant and hop into the trunk of a waiting honda accord. It sped off. Inside, akl's mother had heard several pops. She was shot in the army and rushed in to see several other family members being shot including a son. She said I looked at him. He was looking at me. I could see the blood everywhere on the ground. I could do nothing. If she she said she called 9-1-1 and asked any driver in the gas station for help. Police pulled footage from 70 dash cams and surveillance cameras enroute to follow the route back to abbasi's business, a major break in the case.
