A 16-year-old boy has been charged with first-degree murder in connection with a shooting in Scarborough's Chester Le neighbourhood last month that left a 43-year-old man dead.
Investigators said Andre Charles was found in a parking lot on July 4 in the Chester Le Boulevard and Morecambe Gate area suffering from gunshot wounds.
He was rushed to a hospital trauma centre where he was later pronounced dead.
On July 29, police announced a 21-year-old man had been arrested and charged in Charles' death.
He was identified as Shamar Bailey of Toronto.
On Tuesday, police arrested a second suspect in Charles' murder.
The 16-year-old boy cannot be identified per the terms of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
He appeared in court at 1911 Eglinton Avenue East on Tuesday morning.
Investigators have also issued a warrant for the arrest of Kwami Garrwood, 21, of Toronto.
He is considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached.
