Peel police have arrested a third suspect in connection with a shooting in May that killed a 25-year-old man and injured four others.
Anand Nath, 20, of Mississauga, was wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for first-degree murder and five counts of attempted murder using a firearm. He was believed to be in the Montreal area and has since surrendered to local authorities. He will be brought back to Peel Region to face the charges.
The shooting occurred inside a restaurant in the area of The Collegeway and Glen Erin Drive at around 7:30 p.m. on May 29.
Investigators say a suspect entered the restaurant and began shooting at staff. The 56-year-old owner, his 44-year-old wife, his two sons — aged 22 and 25 — and a 58-year-old male employee were all struck.
The owner’s 13-year-old daughter, who was also inside the restaurant at the time of the attack, was not physically injured.
Naim Akl, 25, of Oakville, was pronounced dead at the scene. The four others were taken to trauma centres and survived their injuries.
Two other men — Naqash Abbasi, 31, of Brampton, and Suliman Raza, 25, of Mississauga — were arrested earlier this week and face the same charges as Nath.
“This was a horrific act of violence which resulted in loss of life and serious injury to the surviving victims,” Chief Nishan Duraiappah said in a statement. “These incidents shatter community safety and will be responded to accordingly with a commitment to bring those responsible to justice while protecting the public.”
