Police probe 2 separate shootings in Mississauga that left 2 dead, 2 others injured
Peel Regional Police say a man has died and two people have been critically injured after a shooting by a Highway 410 ramp in Mississauga.

Police said emergency crews were called to the nortbound ramp at Derry Road just before 9:50 p.m. on Tuesday.

Marttini said police were told that the vehicle the victims were in had just exited the northbound lanes of Highway 410 at Derry Road and was about to make a turn onto Derry Road to go westbound when another vehicle came up beside them. Several shots were fired into the passenger side.

Peel Paramedics told Global News one of the victims was found without vital signs. Two others, a woman and a man, were rushed to hospital in life-threatening condition.

"It's hard to say [if] it's targeted or not, but just by the style of it and from different incidents I have dealt with in the past, I would say it has that marking of being targeted. It's not a random shooting," Marttini told reporters.

Police said the vehicle was getting off the highway ramp onto Derry Road and looking to turn west when another vehicle approached it firing multiple gunshots.

Officers have opened Derry Road between Tomken and Kennedy roads, as well as the highway ramp following the investigation.

A man without vital signs was pronounced dead at the scene. A man and a woman were critically injured and were listed in life-threatening condition in a trauma centre on Wednesday. All three were in a vehicle when shot.

Police have reopened a stretch of Derry Road, from Kennedy to Tomken Roads, and two Highway 410 off-ramps to Derry Road, northbound and southbound, after investigating for hours.

Police are investigating two separate shootings in Mississauga that left two dead and two others seriously injured on Tuesday night.

The shooting happened on a northbound Highway 410 off-ramp at Derry Road. Police, paramedics and firefighters were called to the scene at 9:48 p.m. on Tuesday.

Peel police confirmed that three victims were found inside a vehicle in the area following a drive-by shooting.

One man was subsequently pronounced dead and the other two victims, a man and a woman, were rushed to hospital with serious injuries.

A drive-by shooting on a Mississauga highway that left a man dead and two others critically injured appears to have been targeted, Peel police say.

It is the second shooting in the highway this year. An 18-year-old Brampton teen was shot to death during a car-to-car shootout on the 410 between Bovaird Drive and Sandalwood Parkway on Sept. 16.

Just hours later at around midnight, police were called to a reported shooting outside of a building on Webb Drive, located near Confederation Parkway and Burnhamthorpe Road.

Officers found a man with gunshot wounds inside a newer model black Volvo sedan parked in front of a condo building in the area.

When officers arrived they observed a male that was in the drivers side of the vehicle. He had suffered multiple gunshot wounds and as a result, succumbed to his injuries at the scene, Const. Bancroft Wright said on Wednesday morning.

Reports are from witnesses that a male approached the victim, shots were fired, and the male (suspect) ran across the roadway into the parking lot.

Wright said the suspect fled the area in a vehicle but a description of the car has not been released.

One witness described hearing four "really loud" gunshots and said when he looked out of his window, he saw three cars fleeing the scene.

He added that the other two cars he saw speeding off were a dark-coloured Infiniti SUV and a white Mercedes CLA.

Police have not released any information on possible suspects in either case and say it is too early to confirm if the shootings are linked.
