Two men face first-degree murder charges following Toronto shooting

·1 min read

Toronto police say two men are facing murder charges following a fatal shooting last week that killed one man and injured another.

The men, both 41, are charged with one count each of first-degree murder and attempt to commit murder.

The charges are related to a shooting on Oct. 21 that killed 37-year-old Nikie Timm and sent another man to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Investigators say Timm was found in a north-end parking lot suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, and was later pronounced dead in hospital.

They say the second man, who had attended a private event along with Timm before the shooting, sought hospital treatment on his own.

Police are urging anyone with video evidence or possible information on the shooting to get in contact.
