2 men charged in shooting of 10-year-old boy in east-end Toronto

Police have charged two men in connection with the shooting of a 10-year-old Toronto boy while he was sleeping in his home earlier this month.

The incident took place in a southeastern neighbourhood, at Blake Street and Boultbee Avenue, just before midnight on June 3.

Police said two suspects went to the rear of unit 111 at 70 Blake St., where they allegedly fired several shots into the unit.

The suspects then fled the complex in a two-door Hyundai Accent, police said.

Officers responded to a call of shots in the area and found the boy with a bullet wound to the shoulder.

The boy was taken to the Hospital for Sick Children in serious but non life-threatening condition, but police said Thursday he is expected to make a full recovery.

Jeremy Morgan, 18, and Jaden Sauve, 20, each face 11 firearm and drug-related charges in connection with the shooting.

A search warrant was also executed and 23-year-old John Fetterly-Brown, of Toronto, was arrested and charged with possession of a weapon dangerous to public peace, possession of the proceeds of crime and possession of property obtained by crime exceeding $5,000.

Destany White-Campbell, 18, of Toronto, was also arrested and charged with possession of a Schedule II substance for the purpose of trafficking and unlawfully possessing a Schedule I substance.

Police said the men were scheduled to appear in a Toronto court Thursday at 10 a.m. and added that the car has since been located.

Sgt. Andy Kitchener said earlier this month it appeared the address was targeted but there is no information to suggest the people inside were the intended targets.
