Kingston police are seeking the public's assistance in investigating a double killing involving two males from Ottawa.
Kingston police held a press conference Wednesday afternoon to solicit information from the public about a Saturday night shooting that has been classified as a double homicide.
Kingston police are seeking any information the public may have regarding a Saturday night shooting that resulted in the death of two Ottawa men. The shooting is now being investigated as a double homicide.
Around 7:15 p.m., emergency workers were dispatched to the area of Sydenham Road and Highway 401. Kingston police confirmed the incident on Saturday.
They discovered one deceased guy at the scene, who was later identified as Carl-Alen Delphin, 20, of Ottawa.
Another 29-year-old Ottawa resident, Nico Soubliere, was sent to Kingston General Hospital with life-threatening injuries. Soubliere died in hospital on Monday morning, authorities announced during a Wednesday afternoon press conference.
Const. Joel Fisher of Kingston's major crime section told reporters that a 2016 Kia optima with Quebec plates is key to the police inquiry, though he did not elaborate on how.
"A recreational trail has a parking lot," Fisher explained. "When we discovered the vehicle, it was parked in that parking lot."
According to Fisher, police are aware that multiple automobiles and persons were in the vicinity — a passerby contacted 911 — and are seeking any information the public may have.
"Let us review it to see if it's relevant," Fisher added, urging anyone with even a smidgeon of information to contact him. He requested dashcam footage or public observations.
Both males came in Kingston earlier in the day on Saturday and attended homecoming ceremonies in the university district.
The two were captured on security camera engaging with residents in the district, and police have requested anyone who spoke with them to contact them.
According to Fisher, creating a timeline of their travels that day could aid in establishing purpose.
He stated that authorities were looking for suspects but did not elaborate.
Separately, police are probing the Friday night incident.
Kingston police had stated that the incident may be connected to a shooting that occurred at 8:20 p.m. Friday on Theresa Crescent in another part of the city.
Fisher stated, however, that they are still treating the incidents separately for the time being.
"Treating them as connected has no investigative value," Fisher stated.
