Twenty-five-year-old Ilyas Riyaleh of Toronto is serving a two-year and two-month sentence for possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm, and is wanted by the provincial Repeat Offender Parole Enforcement (R.O.P.E.) Squad — an OPP task force that works with local police services to locate release absconders.

Riyaleh was one of six men arrested in June 2018 in connection with the downtown shooting following the Toronto Raptors’ NBA championship parade.

That shooting began after a 19-year-old man became involved in an altercation on Yonge St. near Gould.

The gunman, who reportedly kept shooting at the victim after he’d fallen, fled the area with a group of friends that allegedly included Riyaleh, but were soon caught by Toronto police.

We apologize, but this video has failed to load.

Riyaleh is described as a 170 lbs., 6-foot-2 black male with black hair and brown eyes.

Anybody with information should call the provincial ROPE squad at 416-808-5900 or leave an anonymous tip via Crime Stoppers.
