Peel police report multiple shootings in Brampton - Brampton Guardian
One dead, one in critical condition following Hwy. 410 shooting
The province’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) has been called in after a fatal shooting on Highway 410 in Brampton.

Peel regional police were called to Highway 410 and Sandalwood Parkway East just before 2:30 a.m. for a person shot.

Const. Heather Cannon told reporters at the scene that the two shooting victims were located with apparent gunshot wounds in a vehicle on the highway just south of Sandalwood Parkway. She said that one of them was pronounced dead on scene while the other was rushed to a trauma centre for treatment.

“When we arrived, we did locate two people with a vehicle in the northbound lanes of Highway 410 near Sandalwood,” Const. Heather Cannon said.

Police have said that the Special Investigations Unit has invoked their mandate in connection with an interaction that police had with a vehicle on Highway 410 immediately following the shooting but have provided no other details.

A second person, another male believed to be in his 20s, was rushed to hospital in critical condition.

We had an interaction with a separate vehicle and due to that interaction we have notified SIU and the SIU has invoked their mandate, Cannon said. Because SIU has invoked their mandate we cant speak to anything else.

A short time later, police had an interaction with another vehicle on the 410 and due to that incident the SIU was called in.

There have been some reports indicating that the vehicle may have been shot by police while fleeing the area and that at least one occupant was injured as a result, though that has not been confirmed.

Police initially tweeted that there were “multiple shootings” but so far, police have only provided details on one of the shootings. It is not yet clear if there was more than one shooting.

There have been reports of a carjacking involving an Uber in the area where the suspect vehicle was located but Cannon refused to comment on whether that investigation could be related.

Police have not provided details on the Audi that was found nearby on Checkerberry Crescent, near Sandalwood and Great Lakes Drive, with several bullet holes in it.

A suspect vehicle, meanwhile, reportedly fled the scene following the shooting and was abandoned in a residential neighbourhood immediately east of the highway a short time later.

Reports from the scene indicate a vehicle was carjacked by two suspects after the shooting. A second vehicle is reportedly in a ditch off the 410. Police have not confirmed either of these two reports.

Here we see yet again police resources are being used to take evil weed off the streets instead of the thugs who are randomly killing and terrorizing innocent people daily.

One person is dead and another person is in critical condition after an apparent shooting involving moving vehicles on Highway 410 in Brampton.

@concat: what does this article have to do with weed??? I’m a heavy pot smoker of 22 yrs and I see nothing about police resources being used for “evil weed” here. I see police resources being used to find someone who killed someone? I’m literally watching the choppers (3 of them) from outside my house, looking for someone who shot someone. Not someone who sold weed or smoked a joint.

Highway 410 is currently closed in both directions between Bovaird Drive and Mayfield Road due to the ongoing investigation.

One person is dead and another seriously injured after what Peel Regional Police are describing as "multiple shootings" on Highway 410 in Brampton. 

One person is dead and another person is in critical condition after an apparent shooting involving moving vehicles on Highway 410 in Brampton.

The shooting took place in the northbound lanes of the highway near Sandalwood Parkway at around 2:30 a.m.

It is a priority for CBC to create a website that is accessible to all Canadians including people with visual, hearing, motor and cognitive challenges.

Const. Heather Cannon told reporters at the scene that the two shooting victims were located with apparent gunshot wounds in a vehicle on the highway just south of Sandalwood Parkway. She said that one of them was pronounced dead on scene while the other was rushed to a trauma centre for treatment.

While on scene, officers had an "interaction" with a separate vehicle, and due to that interaction the SIU was notified, Cannon said.

A suspect vehicle, meanwhile, reportedly fled the scene following the shooting and was abandoned in a residential neighbourhood immediately east of the highway a short time later. Footage from that scene on Monday morning shows a black Audi that is riddled with multiple bullet holes.

The arms-length agency investigates reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault.

There have been some reports indicating that the vehicle may have been shot by police while fleeing the area and that at least one occupant was injured as a result, though that has not been confirmed.

When officers arrived, they located two people with a vehicle on the northbound lanes of Highway 410, said Const. Heather Cannon.  

Police have only said that the Special Investigations Unit has invoked their mandate in connection with an interaction that police had with a vehicle on Highway 410 immediately following the shooting.

Police were called to Highway 410 near Sandalwood Parkway at about 2:30 a.m. on Monday for a person who was shot. 

We had an interaction with a separate vehicle and due to that interaction we have notified SIU and the SIU has invoked their mandate, Cannon said. Because SIU has invoked their mandate we cant speak to anything else.

Cannon said that police are dealing with multiple crime scenes, including the site of the shooting on Highway 410.

There have been reports of a carjacking involving a black Honda Pilot being operated as an Uber in the area where the suspect vehicle was located but Cannon refused to comment on whether that investigation could be related.

She said that right now investigators with the SIU are working alongside forensics investigators, who are searching for evidence on Highway 410.

At this particular point homicide is canvassing the area. Anyone that has any dash cam video or anything that can assist the investigation we are looking for, she said.

Highway 410 is currently closed in both directions between Bovaird Drive and Mayfield Road due to the ongoing investigation.
