An 18-year-old man wanted in connection with Tuesday night’s shooting on Wellesley Street has surrendered.

Kimani Clarke is wanted on two counts of attempted murder after he allegedly opened fire on two 19 year old men at 240 Wellesley Street E. just before 10 p.m.

Police say Clarke approached the men, pulled out a gun, and started firing. The victims fled on foot, but the suspect caught up to one of them and shot him several times.

The other man escaped unharmed.

Clarke surrendered to police Friday afternoon.

He is facing a number of other charges including careless use of a firearm, aggravated assault and two counts of discharge firearm endanger life.

Clarke is expected to appear in court on Saturday.
