An “armed and dangerous” murder suspect is in handcuffs Friday after he was arrested in Surrey, B.C. in relation to the shooting death of a Brampton man in Rexdale. Toronto Police investigators will be returning the man to the GTA.

The shooting took place Oct. 1 at 2:42 a.m.
That’s when first responders were dispatched to BTI Cartage, a  trucking company, at 325 Humber College Blvd. near Finch Ave.
Maninder Singh Sandhu, 31, was found with multiple gunshot wounds to the torso.
Toronto Police say Sandhu, a truck driver, was shot in the parking lot where he stored his tractor at 4:30 p.m. the day prior — roughly 10 hours before he was found by his family.
The gunman is a colleague, police allege.
Investigators say they’ve been “greatly assisted” by the Punjabi community and Sandhu’s coworkers.
An arrest warrant has been issued for Pardeep Chouhan, 34, of Brampton.
