TORONTO — A second man has been arrested after a weekend shooting at a birthday party in Toronto that injured three children.

Kevin George, 21, of Toronto, was arrested today and is facing several weapons charges.

Toronto police allege George and another party-goer got into an argument at a one-year-old’s birthday party and started shooting at each other.

Demar Cadogan, 24, of Toronto, had been charged on Sunday.

Interim police Chief James Ramer says that after George and Cadogan allegedly opened fire, other people at the party started shooting too.

Police say a five-year-old girl who was also shot remains in hospital in critical condition.

The one-year-old who was grazed by a bullet and an 11-year-old was shot in the buttocks have been released from hospital.
