Salim Touaibi, 26, was arrested Monday and also faces one count of first-degree murder and four counts of attempted murder.

Boundaoui was sitting in a car with another person when a second car drove up and someone opened fire. Montreal police say Boundaoui had no link to the conflict between two criminal groups that led to the shooting.
