Barrie man arrested in connection with homicide in Trent Hills
Provincial police arrested a Barrie man in connection with a homicide last month in Trent Hills and are on the hunt for a second suspect.
Police had a section near the Painswick Library in the city's south end blocked off Sunday while officers executed a search warrant at a nearby house.
They arrested an 18-year-old man and charged him with second-degree murder.
According to police, a 38-year-old man from Warkworth was found suffering from a gunshot wound on the morning of Sept. 16. They say the victim, identified as Andrew Brenton Brown, was rushed to hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries but died.
Police are focusing on finding a 19-year-old Mississauga man described as Black, roughly five feet 10 inches tall, 130 pounds, with brown eyes and brown hair.
