He is one of four men facing charges from an April 15 incident that began with a report of shots being fired in the 2200 block of Quince Street. RCMP arrived to find a man in an SUV parked in an adjacent alley suffering from a gunshot wound.

West had been released on $2,000 bail on August 13, but on September 11, a warrant for his arrest was issued for allegedly contravening his conditions, according to court records.

On Tuesday, RCMP were called to the scene at about 3 p.m. and by 5:30 p.m., members of the emergency response team had taken him into custody.

Co-accused Kyle Devro Teegee and Anthony Joseph Karl Larsen have remained in custody since they were arrested in relation to the original incident while Kenneth Ricardo Munroe was released on $1,000 bail on June 28.
