Henok Mebratu is seen in an undated photo released by Toronto police

Toronto police are calling on the public to help them find a 19-year-old man wanted in connection with the May 2011 shooting death of John Kang.

Mr. Kang, 21, was standing outside a Scarborough plaza with a friend when two men approached them. A surveillance tape released by police last year shows the group speaking together for several minutes before all four walk out of the frame.

Shortly after, Mr. Kang was fatally shot, police have said.

In a statement issued Thursday, police said they are still searching for Henok Mebratu in connection with the case. They said he should be considered armed and dangerous, and warned that anyone seen to be helping him evade police could face criminal charges.

Raphael Okezie, 20, was arrested last July and charged with first degree murder.

Mr. Mebratu is also wanted for first degree murder.
