No charges will be laid against a private security guard who fatally shot two men at a Danforth Avenue McDonald’s in February.

Police on Toronto’s homicide squad said that after doing a full investigation and consulting senior Crown attorneys, they found there is no reasonable prospect of a conviction for the Feb. 28 shootings.

According to police, Donny Ouimette, 25, and Ryan Hind, 39, got into a physical confrontation with the guard at about 3 a.m. that morning. The guard was not working at the McDonald’s on Danforth just east of Coxwell Avenue, but at another location nearby.

During the confrontation, the guard fatally shot both men, who were pronounced dead at the scene. The guard was later taken to hospital where he was treated for a firearm-related injury.
