Police in London, Ont., say a man wanted in connection with the death of a teenager who was fatally shot while trying to recover a cellphone has turned himself in.

Mohamed Ibrahim Sail, a 24-year-old from Calgary, is facing a second-degree murder charge in connection with the death of 18-year-old Jeremy Cook. Police said on Twitter that Sail turned himself in shortly before 8 p.m. ET. 

Cook lost the iPhone while visiting London, and later used an app to track down the device. Police have said he was killed on June 14 after tracking the phone to a car with three men inside. Investigators said Cook was shot multiple times when he grabbed the car as it began to drive away.

Another Calgary man, 23-year-old Muhab Sultan, was also wanted for murder in connection to the incident but was found dead in the Rideau River in Ottawa on June 27 after police say he ran away from officers and went in the water.

A third person has been identified by police but has not co-operated with the investigation.
