The motive of the 14-year-old suspected boy involved in the shooting remains unclear, the police said.

The boy was scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice on Monday, the release said.

Nine men gathered in the parking lot area after a soccer game and two suspects got out and began shooting at the group before fleeing the area, the police said.

Delroy “George” Parkes, age 61, was pronounced deceased on the day of the shooting while 46-year-old Seymour Gibbs succumbed to his injuries three days later.

Another three men suffered gunshot wounds, the police added. (Xinhua/NAN)
