Ottawa man arrested in two homicide cases
Ottawa police say they have arrested a suspect in the shooting deaths of two men on Monday.
Alam Gabriel Buoc have been the subject of a nationwide warrant until his arrest on Thursday night.
The 30-year-old man was being sought in connection with the deaths of 26-year-old Abdulrahman Al-Shammari and 27-year-old Dirie Olol, who both died of gunshot wounds Monday. Police were also seeking a suspect in the shooting of a third man, who remains in serious condition in hospital. Officers had responded to a hospital around 7 a.m. Monday for a report of a man suffering from gunshot wounds. Police later found the body of Al-Shammari in the city’s west end, and the body of Olol in an abandoned vehicle.
Buoc is scheduled to appear in court Friday to face two charges of first-degree murder and one of attempted murder.
