Shooting suspect arrested after manhunt in eastern Ontario


Provincial police say they have arrested a suspect this morning following a shooting incident and fire Sunday night in the village of Parham, Ont.

Investigators say the suspect was taken into custody without incident and there are no further public safety concerns.

Police launched the hunt for 42-year-old Brian Daniel Mosher of Central Frontenac after responding to reports of gunshots in the community north of Kingston shortly after 8:30 p.m.

The Frontenac Detachment of the OPP said in a release that one person was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Police also said that a fire, which started in a residence, had spread to an adjacent church causing extensive damage.

Several homes in the village were evacuated as a precaution and Highway 38 was closed in the Parham area, with police setting up roadblocks. However, the highway has since been reopened.
