Police are still searching for a murder suspect more than 14 years after the shooting of a Brampton father with two children and another one on the way.

It was around 4 a.m. on Sept. 11, 2009, when Peel Regional Police say 33-year-old Brampton man Devinder Singh Gill was shot in an altercation at his home on Castlehill Road in Brampton.

According to reports the Brampton man with two children and a pregnant wife was shot during a get-together Gill’s home. The 33-year-old father was rushed to hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

The RCMP issued Canada-wide second-degree murder warrants for two suspects following the shooting and Gurmit Singh Randhawa was arrested in Mississauga in October 2009. But a second suspect, 54-year-old Sawaran Singh Sekhon, is still wanted for second-degree murder in the death of Gill.

Back in 2017, Mounties put out an updated call for information that could help locate the suspect, saying it is possible Sekhon fled to the Ludhiana region of India. Investigators are looking for any leads that could help locate the wanted man.

Sekhon is described as a 54-year-old South Asian male standing approximately 5’9”, weighing around 188 pounds with short black hair and brown eyes.

Police said Sekhon is considered armed, dangerous and violent, and warned members of the public not to approach or try to apprehend him and instead report any leads to investigators.

Anyone with information about this case or who may have information on the whereabouts of Sekhon is asked to contact the RCMP or local police. You can also leave an anonymous tip by contacting Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or visiting www.canadiancrimestoppers.org.
