Police have arrested another suspect in connection with the fatal shooting of a Canadian Indian
Toronto, August 28: Canadian police say they have arrested another suspect in connection with the killing of a 37-year-old Indian-Canadian man in the province of Ontario last year.
Eduardo Tito Silva, 34, was wanted on a Canada-wide arrest warrant in connection with the fatal shooting of Sean Singh at Park Street North in Peterborough, on July 2, 2022.
Officers responded to gunfire during the day and were able to locate Singh, who later died in hospital of his injuries.
He was the second murder victim in Peterborough in 2022.
“At approximately 11pm on 22 August 2023, Eduardo Tito Silva was located and taken into custody following a two-hour standoff with police at a home in Sault Ste Marie,” the Peterborough Police Service said in a statement.
After his arrest, search warrants were made at the Silva’s residence in Sault Ste. Police said Mary, which led to more charges.
Silva was charged with second-degree murder, firing a restricted firearm with intent, possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm with ammunition, and three other firearm counts.
He was held for a bail hearing and appeared in court on August 23.
Peterborough Chief Constable Stuart Bates said: “The distance between where Silva was accused of his crime and where he was ultimately arrested highlights the fact that crimes and those who commit them transcend borders and regional agencies.”
“We have become increasingly dependent on the cooperation of other agencies to reach a conclusion on such complex investigations that threaten the safety of our communities,” Bates added.
According to Global News, prior to Silva, police arrested a man from Peterborough and a woman from Toronto in September 2022, and charged each with second-degree murder and manslaughter.
At that time, the police identified Silva as the third suspect in the investigation and warned that he was considered dangerous.
