Peterborough police have made an arrest in connection with a shooting in October 2016.

Shortly after 9 p.m. on Oct. 1, 2016, police responded to a shooting in the area of Bethune and McDonnel streets.

During the incident, a man sustained non-life threatening injuries, was taken hospital, and was later released. Police say the investigation continued.

“In the fall of 2017, an authorization to intercept private communication was granted to advance the investigation,” police said. That helped lead police to a suspect.
