Toronto man charged with first-degree murder after killing 10 people

Myles Sanderson was the only killer in Canada mass stabbings, and his brother was a victim, police say

A man who pleaded guilty to attempted murder in connection with the Toronto mass stabbings that killed 10 people now faces a first-degree murder charge after two more people were fatally attacked just days after police say he murdered another man in a drive-by shooting that left seven dead.

Sydney Harp was at a bus stop just after 2:30 a.m. PT Tuesday, when a red Dodge Challenger pulled up and a gunman opened fire, according to court records and a police report.

The other man shot was identified as Toronto resident Jaskirat Singh Sidh. He died of the head trauma at a hospital.

Sydney Harp, who is from Brampton, was walking home along a street near Yonge and Yonge West on Aug. 21, 2019, when he was shot in the chest. On Oct. 24, 2019, he was on his way to work when he was shot multiple times near Spadina and Dufferin streets in downtown Toronto, where he worked at a bar called the M.S. Club.

On Oct. 29, Toronto police announced a Toronto man was charged with first-degree murder for the deaths of 10 people at the hands of the accused, who have been identified as Myles Sanderson and Paul Bernardo, police said.

On Tuesday, police said they had made a second arrest of a second man who was a victim in the stabbings and was a suspect in the shooting of Jaskirat Sidh. It was not immediately clear whether the man has been charged with first-degree murder.

Police say Sanderson, 50, is a resident of Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Earlier, Toronto police said they arrested Bernardo, 38, near a home in the Scarborough area of Toronto, where they say he was arrested after a police officer received a call around 4:30 a.m. PT.

Bernardo has been charged with 10 counts of first-degree murder, 13 counts of attempted murder, 19 counts of attempted murder with a vehicle and 16 counts of reckless discharge of a firearm in connection with the killings, police said in a news release.

Harp, 45, was fatally shot at approximately 2:30 a.m. PT Sunday, while he was inside a downtown Toronto bar, police said.
