Toronto police have made an arrest in connection with the York University shooting that sent two women to hospital on March 6.

Kemon Edwards, 22, was arrested and faces a list of charges related to the shooting.

One woman was injured by shrapnel and another was shot in the leg and taken to Sunnybrook Hospital when a man entered the university's food court and fired a gun at around 11 p.m. ET on March 6.

"I heard a loud bang and I thought it was because the chair fell, but it was actually the gunshot, I didn't know this and my leg went numb," one of the victims told CBC News from her hospital bed last week. She didn't realize at the time she had been shot in the leg. The bullet lodged in her thigh.

A campus lockdown occurred after the shooting and was lifted at around 1:10 a.m. ET March 7.

The university put out a statement saying that it had taken “several measures to enhance safety on campus, including increasing security patrols and the use of Toronto Police Service.”

Kemon was to appear in court at 10 a.m. today.
