'Armed, dangerous' suspect in home invasion death turns himself in
Peel Police say Jason Hamilton will be charged with manslaughter in 2012 shooting death of Ibrahim Abukar
A man police described as "armed and dangerous" turned himself in on Monday and will face a charge of manslaughter in connection with a shooting death during a Mississauga home invasion in 2012.
Peel Regional Police are accusing Jason Hamilton, 42, of fatally shooting Ibrahim Abukar, 22, whom investigators allege was one of Hamilton's accomplices in the case.
Hamilton, who police say goes by the name JLOGIX in the Toronto entertainment business, is to appear in court in Brampton on Tuesday for a bail hearing.

Hamilton turned himself in just days after police issued a warrant for his arrest, warning the public not to approach him as they considered him armed and dangerous.
Police said a third man allegedly involved in the home invasion faces a charge of robbery with a firearm. Haldane Smithen-Davis, 36, of Toronto, was arrested in the United Kingdom last September, and is appealing his extradition back to Canada.
The home invasion happened on Corkstone Glade, near Rathburn Road and Dixie Road, around midnight on Dec. 7, 2012. Police allege Hamilton, Smithen-Davis and Abukar were confronted by the homeowner, a struggle ensued and Abukar was shot and killed.
Peel Regional Police thanked members of the Somali community for their help in what they described as a "lengthy" investigation.
