Toronto police say they’ve charged a 24-year-old man with second-degree murder in the city’s 27th homicide of 2019.

They say officers responded to a call for a medical complaint shortly after midnight on Saturday in the Yonge and Charles street area.

Police say they found a man with life-threatening injuries who was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The investigation found that the victim had been standing by the main door of a building on Yonge Street when he was attacked by another man, who then fled on foot.

The victim has previously been identified as James Andrew Smith, 54, of Toronto.

Eric Bryant Ram, 24, of no fixed address was charged with second-degree murder. He was scheduled to appear in court on Monday.
