12-year-old boy struck by roaming bullet in Toronto shooting dies from injuries, police state

Toronto police say a 12-year-old boy who was hit by a stray bullet in a weekend shooting has died from his injuries.

Police had said the boy was out shopping with his mother on Saturday when two men allegedly shot at a moving vehicle in the area.

A 17-year-old boy and two men in the vehicle were wounded but released from hospital later.

Police had said earlier this week that the 12-year-old boy was in life-threatening condition.

Rashawn Chambers, 24, and 25-year-old Jahwayne Smart were arrested in connection with the shooting and each face 28 charges, including attempted murder and aggravated assault.

Police have said the shooting was gang-related.
