Halifax police have arrested one of two men wanted in the slaying of Hamilton’s Brandon Musgrave.
And Hamilton police anticipate that before the weekend is out, another person will be arrested for helping Tyrone Chambers, 23, escape to the Halifax area.
Chambers, wanted in connection with the March 13 shooting of Musgrave, 18, at a student house party, was arrested in Halifax just after midnight Hamilton time on Saturday.
Police would not discuss who he was staying with in the city and said the matter was still under investigation.
Staff Sergeant Ian Matthews of Hamilton’s homicide unit said the arrest came about as a result of information from the community, Crime Stoppers and police investigation.
Matthews would not discuss whether the reward offered for the arrest of Chambers and Joshua Warner, 21, factored into the capture.
Hamilton police are flying to Halifax Saturday, where they will speak to Chambers.
Sergeant Richard Gilroy, of the Halifax police service, said Chambers was arrested without incident and is waiting for Hamilton police to come and get him.
Matthews, who has stayed in Hamilton, believes there will be at least one more arrest shortly.
“There are other people who have committed the offence of being an accessory after the fact during this investigation,” he said.
“And I anticipate before this weekend is over that there will be a further media release by the Hamilton Police Service for at least one arrest for being an accessory after the fact as it relates to the escape of Tyrone Chambers to the Halifax area.”
Musgrave was fatally shot in the head at party on Dundurn Street South last month after an apparent dispute over the music that was being played. Two other men were also injured.
Hamilton police are continuing to search for Warner and are urging him to turn himself in.
Police have offered a reward of up to $10,000 dollars for information leading to his arrest. Police are warning the public that he should be considered dangerous and should not be approached.
Chambers is charged with second degree murder, attempt murder while using a firearm, two counts of reckless discharge of a firearm, two counts of possession of a restricted weapon while prohibited and two counts of breach of probation.
Anyone with information relating to the case is asked to contact homicide detectives at 905-546-4129 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
