Prof Jooyoung Lee on Global News

October 31, 2016 by Sherri Klassen

Professor Jooyoung Lee recently spoke to Global News in relation to Toronto's most recent homocide. Professor Lee says that this case exemplifies a pattern often seen in large cities where young people in their late teens and early twenties are "at peak risk of either offending or becoming the victims of lethal and non-lethal shootings" and calls for policy-makers to consider this in developing interventions.

Professor Lee teaches sociology and criminology at the St. George campus. His research focuses on gun violence.
