Young Man in Custody for Murder

The City has recorded its first homicide since December of 2017.

Aaron Lewis, 19,  from the Ottawa area is charged with second degree murder after Police responded to shots being fired at the Kozy Inn on Princess Street early Wednesday morning.

The victim, Jean Guy Vincent, 38, who was a resident of the motel, was shot with a rifle, and died of his injuries in hospital.

Lewis surrended to Police about an hour after the incident.

While the motive is unclear, investigators do say the two men knew each other and were also known to police.
