Around 3:15 p.m. on Friday, October 23, investigators located the suspect in the area of Church Street and Bloor Street in Toronto.

“Shaimar Stanberry, a 24-year-old man from Toronto, was arrested on the strength of the outstanding warrant,” said police.

“During a vehicle search, police located a loaded Glock pistol.”

He was held for a bail hearing and attended the Ontario Court of Justice in Brampton on Friday.
