ORILLIA, Ont. — Ontario Provincial Police have issued a Canada-wide arrest warrant in connection with a homicide case in Orillia, about 140 kilometres north of Toronto.

Twenty-eight year-old Brian Quesnel is wanted for first-degree murder in the death of an Orillia man.

Joseph Simonds was pronounced dead in hospital on June 4 after OPP officers in Orillia responded to a report of a shooting at a local residence.

Police say Quesnel is a resident of The Nation — a municipality in eastern Ontario.

Two other men, 20-year-old Sonny Brokenshire of Orillia and 41-year-old Martin Forget of St. Barbe, Que., were arrested earlier and charged with first-degree murder in Simonds’ death.

Police say anyone who sees Quesnel or knows where he is should keep their distance and immediately call a tip-line at 1-844-677-5020, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
