Two men have been charged with second-degree murder in the death of Julian Jones, a Baltimore man who was in Toronto for a bachelor party last weekend, Toronto Police said Thursday. 

Kenneth Omarogbe and Kamari Folks were arrested and in court Thursday morning, police said at a news conference.

Police are now looking for a third suspect, a white man in his late 20s, between 160 and 180 pounds, who was casual clothing.

Toronto Police said 26-year-old Julian Jones was reportedly in Canada with close friends for a bachelor party.

Jones was the victim of an “unprovoked attack” outside a Toronto nightclub after groups of men converged and began fighting early Saturday morning. Jones received life-threatening injuries. He was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

Police said Jones and his friends were not the aggressors in the attack.
