Prince Albert’s first homicide of 2018 leads to murder charge
One month after an arrest warrant was issued, a 32-year-old man was taken into custody in connection with Prince Albert’s first homicide of 2018.
Tyrone Nontell, 32, is facing a charge of second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of 28-year-old Tyrell Bird. Nontell was arrested Thursday around 6:40 a.m. during a traffic stop in the 500 block of 32nd Street West, Prince Albert police said in a news release.
Bird was shot in an alleyway in the 100 block of Ninth Street East in P.A. at around 9 p.m. on June 28. He was transported to hospital in Saskatoon, where he died on July 2 from his injuries.
Nontell was scheduled to appear Friday in Prince Albert provincial court.
