Man, 20, charged with second-degree murder in west Toronto shooting

TORONTO — A 20-year-old Toronto man has been charged with second-degree murder in a fatal shooting that took place last month in the city's west end.

Police say they were called to the area of Mimico Avenue and Lake Shore Boulevard West shortly before 8:30 p.m on Sept. 15 and found two injured men.

They say one of the men – 19-year-old Tenzin Rinchen – died at the scene.

The other man was taken to hospital for treatment.

Police say a suspect was arrested on Sept. 19 and charged with weapons offences, but their investigation has now led them to charge him with murder and attempted murder.

The suspect was scheduled to appear in court Tuesday.
