Four facing charges after man killed near Baden
One person is dead, another charged with second-degree murder and three more facing related charges following a shooting in Wilmot Township.
Waterloo Regional Police say officers responded to a residential property on Erb’s Road, just west of Sandhills Road and west of Baden, around 9:30 p.m. Sunday night after being notified of gunshots heard coming from the property.
When police arrived, they found Henry Jarsch, a 41-year-old Kitchener man, dead outside the home.
No suspects were found on the property, but as the investigation continued, four arrests were made in Kitchener.
Crawford Lamka, a 26-year-old Wilmot Township man, was arrested and charged with one count of second-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder.
Also arrested was a 52-year-old Kitchener man, Claude Ouellette, who is charged with accessory after the fact.
Later Sunday night, police attended a Kitchener residence in connection with their investigation.
Inside that home, police say they found two 37-year-old men with gunshot injuries believed to be related to the initial incident.
Both men were taken to hospital, treated and released into police custody.
They’re now each charged with robbery, but police have not released their identities.
Lamka and Ouellette made brief court appearances Monday, but details of what was discussed in court are under a publication ban.
Also in court were one of the two men charged with robbery. He was wearing a bandage on his right arm.
Police say they don’t believe the incident was a random attack.
