Joe Bryan Ndikuriyo, 27, has been charged with second-degree murder in the death of a 21-year-old international student from the University of Ottawa.
Ottawa police say 21-year-old Solomon Odekunle, originally from Nigeria, was stabbed to death at around 2:30 a.m. Sunday morning near the intersection of St. Laurent Boulevard and Ogilvie Road.
Investigators combed a crime scene in front of Piper's Bar and Grill, but said they didn't know whether the incident started there or resulted from a fight that started inside the bar.
In addition to the murder charge, Ndikuriyo was charged Monday with the attempted murder of another person.
Police said Ndikuriyo is an Ottawa resident and known to them.
Odekunle's killing is Ottawa's 17th homicide of 2016.
