Two men charged with first-degree murder in Toronto Father’s Day shooting

Two men have been arrested in Montreal in connection with a fatal shooting in North York on Father’s Day.

It happened on the afternoon of June 19 near Lotherton Pathway and Caledonia Road, south of Lawrence Avenue West.

When police and paramedics arrived, they found 24-year-old Jaron Williams without vital signs who was suffering from gunshot wounds.

He was later pronounced dead on the spot.

On Sunday, police announced that Montreal police, in coordination with the Homicide Division, arrested two 20-year-old men in William’s death.

Police said Jalen Campbell Brown and Justin Harker were both charged with first degree murder.

They appeared virtually in court on Sunday and were remanded in custody.

Police previously said four suspects fled shortly after the shooting in a vehicle described as a beige or champagne-colored 2010-2015 Chevrolet Equinox.

Police also looked to see if the incident is related to another shooting a few miles away in the area of ​​Amaranth Court and Flemington Road, which took place minutes before a 43-year-old man was seriously injured.

It was a violent Father’s Day in Toronto this year, with four separate shootings, including the two in North York, that left one person dead and seven others injured.

Police continue to ask anyone with information to contact them at 416-808-7400 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
