"We were advised on June 14 that a suspect from Winnipeg who was wanted on a Canada-wide warrant was staying in the Kitchener area," Waterloo Regional Police spokesperson Cherri Greeno told CBC News.
"As part of the investigation, we were able to make an arrest in the area of Victoria Street and Westmount early Friday."
Winnipeg Police said Fless was wanted in relation to the shooting death of 39-year-old Benajmin Franklin Traverse on Nov. 28, 2016.
That shooting was connected to another shooting that same day.
A second suspect, 26-year-old James Andrew Jewel, was arrested in January. Jewel faces two counts each of attempted murder, kidnapping and robbery with a firearm. Jewel also faces one robbery charge. He is not facing a murder charge.
Fless now faces charges of second degree murder, two counts of attempted murder, two counts of kidnapping, two counts of robbery using a firearm and a charge of failing to comply with probation.
Police said he will be returned to Winnipeg in the coming days.
