Police say a second victim, Kristopher Quiroz-Brown, 19, of Toronto, died Wednesday in hospital.

A 15-year-old boy was arrested on Aug. 20 and charged with second-degree murder in Meldrum’s death. The accused had been freed on $500 bail on April 13, 2018, one day after he allegedly used a knife to steal from another teen. He cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

Homicide detectives are in talks with the Crown to determine whether a second murder charge will be laid against the 15-year-old. Police say there are no outsanding suspects

Quiroz-Brown is the city’s 69th murder victim of the year.
