The man believed to be the shooter in Sunday’s TD Bank robbery during which a customer and a teller were shot has been arrested, Toronto police tell CityNews.

Lenroy Jackson, 27, of Toronto, was arrested just after midnight by the hold-up squad. He faces numerous charges including robbery while armed with a firearm, discharging a firearm endangering life and attempted murder.

Police said he had a one-way ticket for a flight to Jamaica that was scheduled to depart on Wednesday afternoon.

The brazen heist happened in broad daylight on St. Clair Avenue West, east of Jane Street, shortly before 12:30 p.m. on Sunday.

Bank surveillance video footage showed two men storm the bank, one brandishing a silver semi-automatic handgun. Neither man was wearing a mask, and their faces were visible.

Brampton man Andre Palmer, 26, was arrested Monday afternoon. He faces several charges, including robbery while armed with a firearm, attempted murder and aggravated assault.

A 54-year-old man was shot in the abdomen while a 22-year-old female teller was shot in the thigh. Both were expected to recover.

The Canadian Bankers Association offered a $100,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction.

Jackson was expected at the Old City Hall courthouse on Wednesday morning.
