AKWESASNE – The Akwesasne Mohawk Police Service issued a Canada-wide warrant for an Akwesasne man in connection to a homicide in St. Regis earlier this month.
The warrant was issued Wednesday afternoon for 33-year-old Victor J. Lazore in the death of Jeffrey Allen Lazore-Arquette.
Lazore-Arquette was found in a home on Kateri Tekakwitha Street in St. Regis on Aug. 11. He later died in hospital from a gunshot wound.
The warrant is a formality to trigger the extradition process as Akwesasne police announced an arrest was made, in conjunction with U.S. authorities, on Friday (Aug. 16).
