A man wanted in a double shooting in Port Perry, Ont., last Thursday has surrendered to police.

Danny Nguyen, 27, turned himself in to Durham Regional Police Service’s Oshawa station Monday morning after seeking advice from a lawyer, police said in a statement.

Nguyen is charged with second-degree murder, aggravated assault and possession of a dangerous weapon.

He is expected to appear in court Tuesday morning.

A countrywide warrant had been issued Friday for Nguyen in connection with a double shooting in Port Perry, about 75 kilometres northeast of Toronto, on March 4 that left one man dead and another wounded.

Durham police found Andrew Lee Shue, 43, of Morningside Avenue in Toronto, dead in a rented basement apartment in the lakeside town.

Another man, 35, was shot but managed to get out of the apartment and called police. He was airlifted to a Toronto hospital and treated for non-life threatening gunshot wounds.

Police said the victims and the suspect were acquaintances.
