Montreal police say they've arrested a second person in the stabbing death of 16-year-old Jannai Dopwell-Bailey.
The suspect, identified by police as Andrei Donet, 18, appeared in court today on several charges including second-degree murder.
Dopwell-Bailey was stabbed in the upper body outside the Programme Mile End alternative high school in Côte-des-Neiges, in the city's west end, on Oct. 18. He died in hospital.
His killing, as well as those of two other teens shot in 2021, has prompted calls for governments to address the root causes of violence among youth in the city.
Police have said they were looking for as many as three people in connection with the attack.
A first suspect, a minor, appeared three days after the killing on charges of second-degree murder and conspiracy.
