Police say a third man is facing charges in connection with a mass shooting at a Mississauga restaurant that left one person dead and sent four others to hospital. 

Peel police say that on June 10, 2021, 20-year-old Mississauga man Anand Nath surrendered to Montreal Police. 

The accused will be returned to the Region of Peel to answer to the charges of first-degree murder and attempted murder using a firearm. 

Earlier this week, police announced that two other men have been charged with first-degree murder in relation to the shooting that took place at the long-standing Chickenland restaurant, located in The Collegeway and Glen Erin Drive area, on May 29, 2021.

Police say 25-year-old Oakville man Naim Akl was pronounced dead at the scene. The other four victims were the 56-year-old owner of the restaurant, who is Akl's father, along with the restaurant owner's 44-year-old wife, his 22-year-old son and a 58-year-old man who worked there. 

The owner's 13-year-old daughter was also inside the restaurant but was not physically injured.
