A warrant has been issued for a 21-year-old Toronto man for his alleged role in a double murder at a condo unit near Lisgar Street and Queen Street West, according to police. 

Kwasi Skene-Peters is wanted by police for two counts of first-degree murder. Police consider Skene-Peters armed and dangerous. They are warning the public not to approach him, but to call 911 immediately.

Skene-Peters is the second suspect in the shooting incident. Kamal Hassan, 23, of Toronto, already surrendered to police.

Hassan was charged with two counts of first-degree murder and is scheduled to appear in court Saturday morning.

On June 28, two men were found dead in a unit on the 22nd floor of the Edge at the Triangle Park condo building at 36 Lisgar Street, near Queen Street West and Dufferin Street, police said.

They were identified as Abdiweli Abdullahi and Mohamed Abdiwal Dirie, both of Toronto. Their deaths mark the 24th and 25th homicides in Toronto this year.

Dirie was one of dozens arrested in the Project Traveller raids in 2013, police confirmed.

Project Traveller, which was launched in 2012 and targeted alleged gang members and drug dealers, became well known in Toronto after police recovered a video of former mayor Rob Ford smoking crack cocaine during the investigation.
