A man wanted for second-degree murder and other offences stemming from a pair of shootings in Winnipeg has been arrested in Kitchener.
Michael Fless was arrested around 11:15 a.m. Friday in the Westmount Road and Victoria Street area.
He had been wanted by Winnipeg Police on a Canada-wide warrant, and at large since November 2016 in connection with two separate incidents which occurred on the same day.
One shooting left a 39-year-old man critically injured. He later died. The other incident involved two people being shot after they were robbed and forced into a vehicle.
In addition to second-degree murder, Fless was wanted for attempted murder, kidnapping, robbery and other offences.
Another man was arrested in January for his role in the same alleged incidents.
Waterloo Regional Police say they were alerted earlier this week that Fless might be in the area. It’s not clear what if any ties he has to Kitchener.
Fless will be kept in custody until police officers from Winnipeg are able to pick him up and transport him back to that city.
