Police have arrested 4 men in connection to the murder of a 25 year old man last Halloween.
Charles Shillingford was found with obvious signs of trauma after a crash near Yonge and Charles Street.
He had been shot earlier on Charles and tried to drive away before getting into a crash.
The homicide squad executed several search warrants and arrest warrants last week and as a result arrested 4 men.
31 year old Jahmal Joseph Richardson, of Oakville, 26 year old Kyle Sparks-McKinnon, of Toronto, 20 year old Mitchell Mannette, of Halifax and 19 year old Denzell Tyresse Walter Desmond, of Halifax are all charged with first-degree murder.
Police allege the 4 men are associated to a street gang called “heart of kings” and they also say they are a number of people who have knowledge of the murder and haven’t come forward to investigators.
Police say Kyle Sparks-McKinnon was also charged with two counts of second-degree murder and 3 counts of attempt murder in connection with the 8th and 9th homicides of this year outside a Chinatown restaurant in February.
All 4 men are scheduled to appear in a Toronto court on May 19.
