Waterloo regional police have arrested another man in connection to a shooting investigation in Kitchener that injured a 35-year-old man in April.

On April 30, a passerby found a 35-year-old man with a gunshot wound in a wooded area around Green Valley Drive. He was then airlifted to a hospital outside the region with what police described as serious injuries.

Since then, three men have been charged.

On Thursday, police arrested and charged a 40-year-old Kitchener man with accessory after the fact - attempted murder. Police said he is held in police custody awaiting a bail hearing.

Earlier this month, police arrested and charged Justin Orr, 36, with attempted murder, failing to comply with judicial release and possession of a firearm contrary to prohibition order. 

Orr’s arrest came after a Canada-wide warrant, where he was considered armed and dangerous by police.

The first arrest was May 28, when police charged a 39-year-old man with accessory after the fact in connection to the shooting.

These Picassos prompted a gender war at an Australian gallery. Now the curator says she painted them

They were billed as artworks by Pablo Picasso, paintings so valuable that an Australian art museum’s decision to display them in an exhibition restricted to women visitors provoked a gender discrimination lawsuit. The paintings again prompted international headlines when the gallery re-hung them in a women’s restroom to sidestep a legal ruling that said men could not be barred from viewing them.
