In April, another 20-year-old faced similar charges related to the stabbing. Abdul Zaman, also of Brampton, was charged with robbery, assault with a weapon, aggravated assault, and fraudulently obtaining food.

Police initially reported a third victim had sustained non-life-threatening injuries after being shot with a pellet gun, however, it was later discovered that the student was not shot and that he was injured during a “struggle.”
