Young suspect faces 12 charges in 2 downtown shootings
A man is facing a dozen charges in connection with two separate shooting incidents in Toronto.
Police say the first incident was in September 2009, when shots were exchanged between two groups of people in the city's west end.
Investigators say stray bullets narrowly missed a number of people who were in the area and a gun was located at the scene.
The second incident happened last May, when a group of about 10 people were fired at in an area just east of downtown.
Police say in that incident, stray bullets struck two residences, with one bullet entering a kitchen and the other entering a bedroom, and a gun was also found at that scene.
The man, who is not being identified because police say he was a youth at the time of the 2009 incident, faces various weapons-related charges including two counts of discharging a firearm with intent to endanger life and two counts of carrying a concealed weapon.
