Toronto police say two people are facing charges in the stabbing death of a 17-year-old boy.

They say they were called to the city’s east end shortly after noon on Monday after receiving reports of the boy’s injuries.

He was rushed to hospital, but was later pronounced dead.

The teen has been identified as Brendon Bowler of Toronto.

Later that day, police say they arrested two men, aged 18 and 20.

They each face one count of second-degree murder in Bowler’s death.
