An arrest has been made in the death of Alexander Joseph Frederick Thomas, who was found dead in Dartmouth, N.S. on Saturday.
On Thursday, police issued a Canada-wide warrant for Tyreece Alexander Whynder-Ewing, 27, who is charged with second-degree murder in Thomas's death.
At 4 p.m. AT, Whynder-Ewing turned himself in to police in Toronto and was arrested, police said in a news release.
Police were called to a home on Braeside Court in Dartmouth early Saturday for a report of an unresponsive man. Officers found Thomas dead inside.
An autopsy later confirmed the death was a homicide.
Halifax Regional Police Const. John MacLeod said Thursday that Thomas was shot and that he and Whynder-Ewing knew one another.
MacLeod did not specify the connection between the two men. MacLeod said the killing is not believed to be a random act.
Whynder-Ewing is in custody in Ontario and will be brought to Nova Scotia to appear in provincial court in Halifax at a later date.
