Police continue to hunt for a man wanted on a Canada-wide warrant in connection with a Brampton shooting and other charges.

The shooting happened over two years ago on Feb. 3, 2022 in the Queen Street East and Rutherford Road area of Brampton. A man suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries from gunshot wounds, Peel Regional Police said in a press release today (May 16).

A Canada-wide warrant was issued for Nakeem Jamar Johnson, 33, last year but police continue to seek the public’s assistance in finding Johnson.

Johnson is facing charges of attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder, numerous firearm offences, and drug trafficking offences, police said.

He is described as a Black man, five-foot-six-inches tall, 160 pounds with short black hair, a black beard and brown eyes.

Johnson is considered armed and dangerous, police said. If located, do not approach and call 911 immediately.

The investigation, dubbed Project Journey, into the Feb. 3, 2022, targeted shooting has led to the arrest of six people, police said.

Search warrants have been executed in multiple jurisdictions across the GTA. The investigation has led to the seizure of five firearms, 10 kilograms of methamphetamine, and significant quantities of fentanyl and cocaine.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Nakeem Jamar Johnson or with any information about this incident is asked to contact investigators from the 22 Division Criminal Investigations Bureau at (905) 453-2121, ext. 2233.

Information can also be left anonymously by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), or by visiting their website at peelcrimestoppers.ca.
