Third suspect arrested in shooting death of Kitchener man

Police say theyve arrested and charged a Kitchener man in the death of Yorke, 45, who was found dead in his home on Elm Ridge Drive on the morning of July 8.

Police will not release any more information on the identity of the latest suspect, because he is protected under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

This follows the arrests of Kenneth Morrison, 27, of Kitchener on Oct. 25, also charged with first-degree murder, robbery with a restricted firearm and forcible confinement, and Mowafag Saboon, 24, of Kitchener on Oct. 24, who was charged with more than a dozen criminal offences, including first-degree murder.

He has been charged with one count of first degree murder, one count of robbery with a restricted firearm and one count of forcible confinement.

A third man was arrested and charged with first-degree murder Friday in the death of Shaun Yorke, the Kitchener man found dead of a gunshot wound inside his Forest Heights townhouse last summer.

Two others were arrested earlier this week in relation to the case, and had court hearings earlier in the week.

Waterloo Regional Police continue to investigate and ask anyone with information to call 519-570-9777, ext. 8666, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
