Ottawa police say a 16-year-old boy was shot and killed early Monday morning at a home near Iris Street, west of downtown Ottawa.

Police say a targeted shooting happened around 3 a.m. Monday in the 2200 block of Elmira Drive near Cobden Road.

Two 16-year-olds were shot and one of them, later identified by police as John Ndayishimiye, died of his injuries.

Paramedics treated the second shooting victim at the scene for non-life threatening injuries before taking him to hospital.

There are no suspects in custody and police continue to investigate.

This is the second homicide on Elmira Drive in recent years. In 2016, a 40-year-old man was shot and killed.
