London police say they’ve arrested the final suspect sought in a week-long weapons investigation that stemmed from a disturbance in northwest London.

It began just after 12 a.m. on Sept. 13.

Officers were called to a parking lot at 1229 Wonderland Rd. N. following reports of a gunshot heard in the area.

Police arrived to find a man suffering from stab wounds. He was transported to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, but has since been released.

Evidence on-site showed a firearm had been discharged, but police said no gunshot-related injuries were reported.

Later that day, officers announced the disturbance had been deemed a weapons investigation.

Police also revealed that four Londoners, ranging in age from 21 to 26, had been charged with a number of weapon-related offences.

The four other suspects made court appearances last week.
