Police have arrested one man and issued a Canada-wide warrant for another in connection with the murder of an 18-year-old man in Mississauga last weekend.
The victim, identified as Maxwell Alexander Chavez, was one of two people who were stabbed a McDonald's parking lot near Lakeshore and Cawthra roads in the early hours of Oct. 14.
Chavez was rushed to a Toronto trauma centre but succumbed to his injuries upon arrival. The other victim, also an 18-year-old man was treated for serious but non-life threatening injuries.
