Second man charged in hallway shooting that injured 5 teens
21-year-old arrested Wednesday in Barrie, Ont., in separate matter
Toronto police have charged a second man with attempted murder following a shooting that injured five teenagers late last month.
Investigators say Malik Mohamed, 21, was arrested on Wednesday in Barrie, Ont., in relation to a separate matter.
They say Barrie police then learned of the warrant out for his arrest related to the shooting at a low-rise apartment building in Toronto.
That incident happened on the evening of Oct. 30, when Toronto police allege two people opened fire on a group of teens gathered in the hallway.
A 16-year-old girl, a 17-year-old girl and three boys between the ages of 16 and 18 suffered gunshot wounds.
On November 8, Toronto Police returned Mohamed to Toronto.
Mohamed has been charged with:
- Five counts of attempted murder.
- Discharging a firearm being reckless as to the life or safety of another person.
- Careless storage of a firearm.
- Possessing of a loaded firearm.
- Two counts of possessing a restricted or prohibited firearm without a license and registration certificate.
- Carrying a concealed weapon.
- Possessing a weapon dangerous to public peace.
- Occupying a motor vehicle with a firearm.
Andre Cunningham, 20, was arrested last week in Toronto in connection with the incident, and was also charged with five counts of attempted murder and other weapons-related offences.
Mohamed appeared in court on Friday.
