They say Guelph police arrested the youth on Thursday morning while executing a search warrant at a home on Saddlebrook Court in Kitchener.
Guelph police say they were at the home to arrest a man in connection to a shooting which occurred within that city last March at a residence on Silvercreek Parkway.
They say a 28-year-old man from Kitchener was arrested in connection to that investigation and both suspects are facing multiple charges including aggravated assault, possession of a stolen motor vehicle and multiple firearms charges.
Guelph police say they also seized a firearm, ammunition, drugs and a stolen vehicle as well as $50,000 worth of controlled substances
The 17-year-old was turned over the Waterloo police who say he has been charged with first-degree murder.
On Sunday, Waterloo police said gunshots were reported at a home in Cambridge.
Police found a 46-year-old Cambridge man suffering from a gunshot wound. He was transported to an out-of-region hospital where he was pronounced dead.
They said that they believe it to be an isolated incident as the victim and suspect were known to each other.
Police had released the suspect’s name and image but as he has been arrested and is a minor, the details can no longer be published.
This is the first homicide of 2022 in Waterloo Region.
