Following an intense road rage incident this week, Toronto Police arrested two men linked to the Highway 400 on-ramp incident. Cosmo James, 34, and Nathaniel Grant, 34, who are now facing numerous criminal charges.
According to Toronto Police Services, both men are facing similar charges, one count of possessing a loaded firearm, one count of possessing a prohibited firearm without a license, one count of occupying a motor vehicle with a firearm and four counts of breach of prohibition order. James is also on the hook for two counts of attempted murder.
Both James and Grant appeared at Toronto West court this morning at around 10:00 AM to hear their charges. It is unconfirmed at this moment when the accused will appear in court again, as police are still releasing details.
It was first reported that the daylight shooting broke out in North York on Tuesday morning after a head-on collision between two vehicles ended in a shoot out. Originally, Toronto police reported that the shoot out broke out on the Ontario Highway 400 on-ramp from Jane Street.
However, it has since been confirmed that the shooting was at a convenience store near Jane and the 400. In fleeing the scene, the suspects got in a collision on the 400, which led to a confrontation. The suspects fled on foot and ditched the gun. *
Toronto police are now requesting the public's assistance in locating the last two suspects wanted in connection to the shooting. Investigators have released details on those suspects, who were also involved in the deadly shoot out, which caused a stretch of highway to be closed and nearby school to be placed under lockdown on Tuesday morning.
Dwight John, 22, and Malik Christie, 20, the suspects at large, also face a number of charges including three counts of attempted murder. Police have warned the public that both suspects are considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached if located.
Anyone with any information regarding the investigation is being asked to reach out to police at 416-808-1200 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS.
