Police arrest 2 in Ontario after Montreal-area restaurant killing

Quebec provincial police say two more people from Ontario have been arrested in the brazen killing of a man inside a busy Montreal-area restaurant in June.

Bernard Cherfan, 42, was targeted while seated at a table in a Laval, Que., restaurant.

He was gunned down in front of numerous diners at around 7:30 p.m. on June 1.

Quebec provincial police say 19-year-old Tafari Bezabeh was arrested Wednesday in Toronto and appeared by video at the courthouse in Laval, just north of Montreal, on a first-degree murder charge.

A second suspect, Jalen Joel Campbell Brown, 21, was also arrested in Ontario and was arraigned on charges including first-degree murder and being an accessory after the fact.

A few weeks after the shooting, Britney Lewis, 25, of Pickering, Ont., was arrested and charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder.
