Fourth suspect sought in Calgary slaying on New Year’s Day

CALGARY — Police are now hunting a fourth man wanted in a gangland slaying at a southeast Calgary restaurant on New Year’s Day.

CALGARY — Police are now hunting a fourth man wanted in a gangland slaying at a southeast Calgary restaurant on New Year’s Day.

Nicholas Rodrigo Hovanesian, 24, is wanted for three counts of first-degree murder after three men were gunned down.

Sanjeev Mann, 22, a known member of the FOB Killers, and Aaron Bendle, 21, an associate, were fatally shot inside the restaurant.

Keni Su’a, 43, an innocent bystander, was gunned down in the parking lot after he fled when the shooting started.

Mann was wearing a bullet-proof vest when masked men stormed into the restaurant and began firing at his table in the targeted attack.

Several people dove for cover under the table and were not hurt.

Staff Sgt. Doug Andrus said Hovanesian is considered a gang associate and has ties to Calgary and Lethbridge.

“He is known to our gang unit as an associate but has not been designated as a gang member by the courts,” he said, adding Hovanesian is wanted on a Canada-wide warrant and police do not know which province he is in.

“We are working with other police agencies to make sure they have up-to-date information.”

Three other men are already facing charges of first-degree murder in the slayings.

Real Christian Honorio, 25, was arrested on June 8 and Michael Joseph Roberto, 25, was arrested four days later.

Nathan Zuccherato, 23 — who was living outside Calgary at the time — turned himself in to police four days after that when he was named as a suspect.

Andrus said the investigation is still far from over.

“It’s a high priority of the service,” he said.
