Police charged three young offenders on Thursday in connection with the death of a young man who was found shot in an East York apartment last month.

On Friday, Oct. 14, 19-year-old Bradley Matheson of Toronto suffered at least one gunshot wound and died in the stairwell of a building on Eastdale Avenue, near Main Street and Danforth Avenue.

Two 16-year-old boys and a 15-year-old boy were each charged with second degree murder, police said.

The accused, who cannot be identified under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, are scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
