Brampton manslaughter shooting

A convicted killer who served time following a fatal shooting in Brampton is back in custody after being spotted at a Pickering casino.

Durham Regional Police says the OPP was called to the Pickering Casino Resort on Jan. 10 after receiving reports about a wanted man on the premises.

Durham Regional Police say the suspect was a 31-year-old man who had been released “after serving a sentence for manslaughter.”

Officers found the man at the casino hotel and say the 32-year-old from Guelph was taken into custody without incident.

Police say Che’Don Jackson, 32, of Guelph was transported to a Correctional Services Canada facility to complete his sentence.

Court documents show Jackson was serving a more than eight-year sentence for manslaughter and was previously charged with second-degree murder in the 2014 death of Mohan Dori of Brampton.

Jackson was classified as a “maximum-security offender” but was transferred to a medium-security level penitentiary following a ruling in October 2018.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Durham Regional at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 1901. Anonymous tips can also be submitted by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online by visiting www.crimestoppers.ca.
