Pointe Claire murder: suspect arrested in Brockville

Montreal police have arrested a suspect in the death of a man at a hotel parking lot in Pointe Claire last weekend.

The man's body was found on the ground of the hotel parking lot near St-Jean Blvd. off of Highway 40 on Saturday. 

Jérôme Latham, 49, was arrested Tuesday in Brockville, Ontario.

Latham appeared in court yesterday afternoon on charges of second degree murder.

Police say their investigation suggests the 34-year-old victim had a meeting with Latham for an alleged drug transaction. They say there was a dispute and the victim was shot at least once.

This was the 12th homicide of the year on Montreal police territory.
