Windsor police have arrested a Waterloo man and have issued a warrant for a Windsor man related to the death of a 16-year-old.
Patrol officers were dispatched to the 900 block of Church Street after receiving a report of a male laying in the alley on Wednesday Feb. 14.
Investigators from the Major Crimes Branch have identified two individuals involved in this homicide.
On Saturday, officers arrested Mal Chol, a 20-year-old man from Waterloo, without incident. The arrest took place within Windsor. Chol is charged with first degree murder, kidnapping and forcible confinement.
A second man, Nouraldin Rabee, a 19-year-old from Windsor, is wanted on an arrest warrant for first degree murder, kidnapping and forcible confinement.
Rabee is described as being 6'2, 150 lbs, with black hair and brown eyes. He is to be considered armed and dangerous. Police say do not approach him, and instead call 911 if he is seen.
Investigators believe Rabee has fled the jurisdiction.
The victim is identified as 16-year-old Chance Gauthier, who leaves behind his parents and two brothers.
Police say he died of a gunshot wound, but officers have yet to recover a firearm.
“Investigators have been working tremendously hard on this case and have been able to determine that the deceased victim and the two parties that are being charged with this matter were known to each other and it does appear to be a targeted act,” says Sgt. Steve Betteridge. “It was not a random act.”
Gauthier's death is the first homicide in Windsor in 2018. But police are investigating a second, unrelated homicide that happened five days later in the city’s west end.
The Major Crimes Branch continues to actively investigate.
