Two teenagers have been charged in connection with the fatal shooting of a 44-year-old man in the city’s York University Heights neighbourhood earlier this month.

Emergency crews were called to an industrial plaza in the area of Keele Street and Canarctic Drive on Oct. 2 at around 9: 30 p.m. for reports of shots fired nearby.

“It is an industrial plaza and at that time of night the business was about to close in about a half hour and they were running an illegal marijuana dispensary from the business and I believe that was known to the suspects and their motive in this was to rob the dispensary but it turned bad,” Det. Paul Worden told CP24 on Thursday night.

Toronto-resident Dwayne McMillan was located at the scene with obvious signs of trauma. He was pronounced dead at the scene by Toronto paramedics.

On Thursday, investigators said 19-year-old Jahnoye Carpenter, of Toronto, and a 16-year-old boy, who cannot be identified under the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act, had been arrested in connection with this case.

Both males have been charged with second-degree murder and arson to property.

The pair is scheduled to appear in court on Friday.

Worden said investigators are still searching for two additional suspects but no descriptions have been released.

“As early as next week we’ll be releasing some video and asking for the public’s assistance in identifying these parties. Anyone who would know these parties would be able to identify them from the video we got so my hope to avoid having to release this video and have their images put all over the media that they just contact a lawyer and come in so we can do this quietly,” he said.

Anyone with further information is asked to contact police at 416-808-7400 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
