Durham police have arrested and will charge a suspect in the death of 22-year-old Shabir Niazi.

Police said the 22-year-old suspect was arrested at a home in Ajax earlier Saturday. He will face a second degree murder charge and police are expected to release his name after his Sunday morning court appearance.

Niazi was found dead from a gunshot wound in a garage near Roosevelt Ave. and Kings Cres. a week ago. It was originally deemed a “sudden death,” but was later changed to a homicide.

Three males were seen running from the area shortly after police were called for sounds of gunshots.

Niazi is Durham region’s first homicide of 2014.
