A warrant has been issued for a 19-year-old Toronto man in connection with the deadly shooting of a soccer referee earlier this month in North York.
Officers arrived on the scene to find a 49-year-old — later identified by Futsal Canada as referee Edwin Farley Alvarado Quintero, of Woodbridge — had been shot. He was taken to hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
Two other men were also shot and transported to hospital, one with life-threatening injuries.
