A 33-year-old man is facing two counts of murder related to separate shootings that took place more than six months apart.
Ibrahim Khiar was arrested on Wednesday, charged with second-degree murder in a href=”https://toronto.citynews.ca/2018/07/07/police-identify-victim-kensington-market-shooting/”>a shooting that sent four people to hospital in the city’s bustling Kensington Market neighbourhood last Canada Day.
One of those injured, 19-year-old Marcel Teme, died in hospital three days later.
Police say Khiar is also charged with first-degree murder in the death of 24-year-old Jaunoi Christian, who was gunned down while standing in the doorway of a nightclub on Queen Street East, just east of Parliament Street in the early morning hours of Feb. 8.
Khiar also faces a slew of weapons charges in connection to both cases.
