Oshawa schools lockdown due to Ajax shooting case standoff

Durham Police homicide investigators have arrested three suspects in connection with a fatal shooting which claimed the life of a 33-year-old Ajax male.

On November 11, at about 4:25 am, members of West Division were called to a residence on Pembry Drive in Ajax for an armed person call. A 33-year-old male was located with gunshot wounds. He was transported to a Toronto-area trauma centre but was later pronounced deceased. The victim has been identified as Maurice Fullerton, said a police statement.

Three suspects were arrested shortly after the incident in relation to a residence on Highland Avenue in Oshawa.

Earlier reports said one of the men was barricaded inside prompting a lockdown of three schools in the area.

Devin Mandley-Byer, age 22, Trevor Kotzma, age 25 and Michael Rodgers, age 25 were arrested and charged with Second Degree Murder.

Anyone with new information about this homicide is asked to contact Det. Graham of the Major Crime Homicide Unit at 1-888-579-1520 ext.5418.
