A 19-year-old man has been charged with second-degree murder in connection with the death of a man in Willowdale.
According to Toronto police, some sort of physical altercation broke out between two men in the Hounslow Avenue and Beecroft Road area, near Yonge Street and Finch Avenue, shortly before 1: 30 a.m. Tuesday.
One man was taken to hospital by friends following the incident.
The victim, identified as 19-year-old Haozhi Wang, succumbed to those injuries at the hospital a few hours later.
Officers were then called to the hospital and spoke to the victim's friends who told them that he had been in a fight.
Officials did not comment on the circumstances that led up to the altercation.
A suspect identified as Toronto resident Boqiao Fan was charged Wednesday with one count of second-degree murder.
He was expected to make an appearance in court this morning.
