Kingston police officers arrest one person in connection with murders of Ottawa men last October

Nico Soubliere and Carl Alen Delphin, both from Ottawa, were killed in a shooting at a parking lot on Sydenham Road near Highway 410 on Oct. 16, 2021.

Police officers in Kingston, Ontario have arrested a man in connection with the murder of two Ottawa men last fall.

Nico Soubliere and Carl Alen Delphin, both from Ottawa, were killed in a shooting at a parking lot on Sydenham Road near Highway 410 on Oct. 16, 2021.

The victims attended the Queen’s homecoming street parties earlier in the day, and investigators confirmed the two men were together with a third person later named as a suspect in the investigation. Further video footage of the suspect was obtained in the course of the investigation, and investigators were eventually able to identify Toronto’s Gregory Anthony Beasley as the suspect in this double murder.

Kingston Police arrested Beasley on August 17 in connection with the Soubliere and Delphin murders. Beasley was transported to Kingston Police Station, where he was held for a bail hearing on August 18, which led to his being taken into custody.

He is charged with two counts of first degree murder, possession of a firearm while prohibited, use of firearm to commit a criminal offense, possession of a prohibited firearm without a license or registration certificate. More charges are expected as the investigation progresses.

During his arrest, Beasley was in possession of a firearm, leading to additional charges being filed.
