A 17-year-old has been charged in the shooting death of 46-year-old Saint Lucian, Alexis Charles, outside a party in North York last summer, local reports say.
The teen was arrested on Wednesday and charged with one count of second degree murder.
CA 24 said the young suspect cannot be identified per the terms of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
The victim was found on August 25 with one gunshot wound.
CBC News quoted investigators as saying that at the time, there was a large party going on and at least 100 people were nearby when shots rang out.
However the media organisation said it was unclear at the time if the victim had been there for the party or not.
Alexis Charles is the older brother of the late former Police Press Officer Tamara Charles-Laure ,who also performed in police calypso under the stage name ‘Brown Sugar’.
Tamara died in February this year.
Her brother moved to Canada about ten years ago.
