Toronto police say a 14-year-old boy and a 19-year-old man have been charged in connection with the shooting death of a 19-year-old man in January.

Police announced more arrests in the investigation on Thursday after three other teenagers were already charged on Tuesday.

Malachi Elijah Bainbridge was found suffering from several gunshot wounds inside of his car sitting just outside a McDonald’s on Ingram Drive near Keele Street and Eglinton Avenue on Jan. 22.

“We believe that Mr. Bainbridge did have an arranged meet at that location,” said Det. Sgt. Ted Lioumanis. “As soon as Mr. Bainbridge arrived on scene he was ambushed by two shooters and shot multiple times.”

Despite life-saving measures, Bainbridge was pronounced dead on scene.

Lioumanis said a Honda Accord, believed to be the getaway vehicle, was found four hours after the shooting completely engulfed in flames in Clarington, Ont.
