Investigators are offering $100,000 rewards to find information about the murders of two women in Mississauga who police say were both innocent bystanders, shot to death outside bars.

Peel Regional Police will be offering two separate $100,000 rewards for information leading to the arrest of suspects in two unsolved homicides – the fatal 2019 shooting of 24-year-old York University student Jackline Gore, and that of 19-year-old Raneilia Richards late last year.

Investigators say Gore was an unintended target when she was shot to death in the early morning hours while waiting for a ride home outside Fume Bar and Lounge, on Torbram Rd. in Mississauga.

Gore, who wanted to be a clinical psychologist, was struck by a stray bullet while waiting in the bar’s parking lot, police said. A $25,000 reward for information on the murder was offered by Peel police in 2022.

Gore, 24, from London, Ont., was an unintended target when she was shot to death outside Fume Bar and Lounge in Mississauga.

Richards was also the unintended target of a Dec. 31, 2023, shooting outside Jungle Event Space at Dixie Road and Eglinton Avenue East. Formerly known as HER nightclub, which shut down in late 2022 after a rash of gun violence, the location reopened several months later under the new name.
