TORONTO -- Two Toronto men are facing murder charges in connection with a downtown shooting earlier this month.

Federick, who was shot in the abdomen, died of his injuries in hospital.
The second victim, a 37-year-old man, survived with a minor wrist wound.
Shaqwan Kawano and Alton Grant, both 19, are charged with first-degree murder.
