Toronto Community Housing says it will put $150,000 toward capital repairs for a property where a deadly shooting occurred last week.

The housing complex on Swansea Mews was swarmed by police twice in the same week after Christopher Kotsopoulos was shot dead on Aug. 5 and again when officers executed search warrants four days later.

Three men have been charged with second-degree murder in the Toronto man's death.

Gene Jones, the TCH president and CEO, says that Swansea Mews residents "stepped up" after the shooting and helped police make an arrest quickly.

That's why the housing agency is recognizing the residents of the complex and Jones said that the same support will be made available to people living in other TCH properties.

"I want all Toronto Community Housing residents to know that if they come together like the residents at Queensway Windermere, I will work with them to make their community a better place," Jones said in a statement.
