Its one thing to have an idea of who might have been responsible for something, its another thing for us to ensure that we get it through the court system in a water-tight way that is prosecutable because ultimately that is the only way to bring full justice to a victim and the victims family, he said.

Innocent 23-year-old fatally shot on way home from work was in same type of car as intended target

Peel police say they are offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a suspect who gunned down an innocent 23-year-old man on Highway 410 in Mississauga last year.

Police announced details of the reward at a news conference on Monday, a day before the one-year anniversary of Jason Ramkishuns death.

In the early morning hours of Nov. 13, Ramkishun was found suffering from gunshot wounds inside his vehicle on Highway 410 near Courtneypark Drive.

He had his life on the right path, but simply heading home and being in the same car as someone else, thats what ended up costing him his life, Insp. Marty Ottaway told reporters at a news conference held at Peel Regional Police headquarters on Tuesday morning.

Police say Ramkishun, who worked as a security guard, had just finished his shift and was driving home when the occupants of another vehicle pulled up beside him on the highway and starting shooting.

One week later, a second person was wounded in a drive-by shooting on Highway 410 and police say they believe that victim was the intended target in the shooting that claimed the life of Ramkishun.

On the morning of Nov. 13, 2018, our family woke to find that Jason had not returned home from his evening shift as a security guard, the statement read. Morning news reports would soon detail a police investigation that had shut down Highway 410.

Jason Ramkishun was tragically shot and killed… in a case of mistaken identity, Insp. Marty Ottaway said at a news conference on Tuesday morning. Both Jason and the second victim drove the same type of vehicle.

On Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2018, shortly after 11 p.m. a male victim was driving his 2013 Honda Accord northbound on the 410, just north of Derry Road when a vehicle pulled alongside him and unknown suspects started shooting, he said.

Police say they have been able to determine that the gun used to shoot Ramkishun was one of two weapons used in the second shooting on Highway 410. Investigators noted that the weapon was recovered by police in an unrelated incident.

Ottaway said police have also spoken to the man they believe was the intended target but would not provide details about that conversation.

Ottaway called Jasons murder a senseless tragedy perpetrator by criminals who have no regard for human life.

"It has been almost a year since we received the devastating news to our family that Jason would never be coming home again," Ramkishun's family said in a statement provided to the media Tuesday.

He had his life on the right path and simply by returning home and being in the same car (that) someone else (has), that ended up costing him his life, Ottaway said.

At the time of his death, Ramkishun was enrolled in a police foundations program at Sheridan College and his family said he had hoped to work in law enforcement some day.

The victims family was present at the news conference on Tuesday but did not speak, opting to have police read a statement on their behalf.

Using forensic evidence, officers were able to determine the firearm used to shoot Ramkishun was also used in the second Highway 410 shooting, police say.

In their statement, Ramkishuns family described the day they learned that their son and brother was never coming home again.

On the morning of Nov. 13, 2018, our family awoke to find that Jason had not returned home from his evening shift as a security guard. Morning news reports would soon detail a police investigation that had shut down the Highway 410. There was a single vehicle off the roadway that resembled Jasons car, the statement read.

A week after he was gunned down, a 26-year-old Brampton man was seriously injured in a drive-by shooting on Highway 410 near Steeles Avenue, police said.

Our concerns for Jasons whereabouts and safety grew. Police officers knocked on our door and informed us that Jason was the victim of a shooting… Jason was dead.

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.

They said one year later, the pain and suffering they feel over his loss is as as fresh as when they first heard the news.

Investigators say they believe the man in the second shooting was the intended target, not Ramkishun. 

They described the victim as a good man and a good friend who loved his family and his car.

Ramkishun was heading home from an evening shift as a security guard when he was shot, his family said.

He wanted to give back to his community and became a security guard to further his own interests in law enforcement, his family said.

Peel police are asking anyone with information about the case to call investigators or Crime Stoppers anonymously.

We believe a number of people have knowledge of what took place and can help us solve this case, Ottaway said.
