Investigation Leads to 26 Charges for 10 Individuals

Posted On Thursday October 03, 2019

Region of Peel – A combined task force of officers from across Peel Regional Police, have successfully made arrests in regards to a string of shootings that occurred in 2018 and 2019.

Beginning in January 2018 and up to February 2019, a total of seven shootings occurred in the area of Hurontario Street and Elia Avenue in the City of Mississauga.  During these incidents, three victims were struck by bullets while the other four did not result in any injuries.

While all the incidents were being investigated, including the three attempt murder incidents, the impact of these crimes had a greater reach than just to the victims.  The community as a whole, was feeling the effects and was living in a continuous state of fear. The safety of the community is one of the primary goals of Peel Regional Police and as a result, investigators worked closely with the tight-knit community, through numerous community-based initiatives and police led town hall meetings, to solve these incidents and bring reassurance to the neighbourhood. 

As a result of diligent work by officers from the task force, there have not been any further incidents of shootings in the area and the suspects of the most serious incidents have been identified and charged. 

On September 26, 2019, a 23-year-old man from Brampton was charged with Attempt Murder in regards to an incident that occurred on February 3, 2019, at approximately 11 p.m. Additionally, a 22-year-old woman from of no fixed address and a 26-year-old woman from Brampton were charged with Accessory After the Fact of Attempt Murder.

On October 3, 2019, a 21-year-old man from Waterloo was charged with two counts of Attempt Murder in regards to incidents that occurred on February 5, 2019, at approximately 11 p.m and on January 22, 2018 at approximately 12:30 a.m.

In addition to the above noted charges, over 16 criminal code charges were laid against 7 additional individuals.  We continue to work with our policing partners in investigating the remaining incidents. 

Anyone involved with these incidents is urged to seek legal counsel and surrender themselves at a police facility immediately.

Anyone with information is asked to call investigators from the 12 Division Criminal Investigation Bureau at  (905) 453–2121, extension 1233.  Anonymous information may also be submitted by calling Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), by visiting peelcrimestoppers.ca.
