A $50,000 reward leading to the conviction of Kiesingar Gunn's killer has been extended on the anniversary of his death.

Up to $50,000 is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the killer, or killers, responsible for the death of the 26-year-old from Toronto.

- he was stuck by a bullet and taken to hospital in a serious condition

- he succumbed to his injuries just before midnight on Sunday, September 11, 2016
