Investigators say 25-year-old Rabih Alkhalil is charged with first-degree murder in the shooting of John Raposo, 35, on June 18.

Police say Alkhalil is also wanted for drug- and organized-crime-related offences by Niagara regional police and Quebec provincial police.

Police say Martino Caputo, 39, of Toronto, is being held pending extradition proceedings in Germany.

All have been charged with first-degree murder.
