Police say Michael Deabaitua-Schulde of Mississauga was found at the scene and died from his injuries in hospital.

They say two suspects – 28-year-old Marckens Vilme and 26-year-old Jonathan Martinez-Reyes – were arrested Wednesday night in Montreal.

Mr. Vilme is charged with first-degree murder and Mr. Martinez-Reyes with accessory after the fact.

Another man, 38-year-old Joseph Pallotta of Montreal, is still at large and is being sought on a first-degree murder charge.

Police say he is believed to be armed and dangerous and should not be approached.

“I want to assure the community that we will not tolerate this type of violence in our community,” Peel Regional Police interim chief Chris McCord said in a statement.

“I am pleased to say two arrests have been made and both suspects are believed to members of organized crime.”
