Two teens are facing a total of 25 charges including one of manslaughter in the death of a 14 year old girl at a Rexdale home last month.
Lecent Ross has shot at the residence on Jamestown Crescent near Kipling Avenue and Albion Road on July 9th.
An illegal semi automatic handgun was recovered at the scene although at a press conference on Friday morning, police refused to say who they believe pulled the trigger
The suspects who are 13 and 18 years old were arrested yesterday, neither suspect can be named due to the fact that one of them is a minor and in naming the 18 year old, police risk revealing the younger teen’s identity.
The relationship between the two suspects is not known.
The family of Lecent Ross were in attendance at the press conference and spoke to the public calling for an end to gun violence and urging parents to be vigilant against it.
