Kingston police have made an arrest in the city’s first murder of the new year.
The killing happened at the Integrated Care Hub on Montreal St.
Police officers, paramedics and fire responded to the scene after a man was stabbed at the hub around 2:15 a.m.
Crews arrived at the parking lot behind the 661 Montreal St. building, where an area was taped off for the investigation.
The unidentified man had been stabbed an unknown number of times in the chest.
Kingston police searched the nearby neighbourhoods, along with stretches of the K&P Trail, looking for a suspect, eventually finding him in the wooded area behind the care hub.
Charged with first-degree murder is 48-year-old Roy Douglas Snyder of Kingston. He’s also facing a charge of possession of a weapon in committing an offence.
Police say the victim won’t be identified until next of kin are notified and that there are no concerns for public safety. They are not looking for additional suspects.
