Hamilton police have named the fourth person charged with murder in connection with the shooting death of McMaster student Tyler Johnson.
Louis Rebelo, 26, of Hamilton is charged with first-degree murder. The arrest came after officers searched his central Mountain home.
It’s the sixth arrest in the shooting death of the 30-year-old Hamilton man. Johnson was gunned down during an early-morning altercation on Nov. 30, 2013 in front of Vida La Pita, a restaurant on King Street West at Caroline, just west of Hess Village.
On Dec. 11, officers arrested Brandon Barreira, 19, of Cambridge, also after using a search warrant. Barreira is charged with first-degree murder.
Police have also charged Chad Davidson, 34, and Joshua Barreira, 25, with first degree murder. Both live in Hamilton. A 27-year-old and 28-year-old female are also charged with accessory after the fact.
Rebelo will appear in court on Tuesday.
