Former Peel police officer charged after woman injured in Mississauga shooting
The province’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) has laid charges in relation to a police-involved shooting in Mississauga.
On May 10, 2020, Peel police officers responded to a domestic call at a residence on Ledbury Crescent in the area of Terry Fox Way and Matheson Boulevard.
“There was an interaction between officers and individuals, and one officer discharged her firearm,” according to the SIU.
34 year old Chantelle Krupka was struck and taken to hospital for treatment.
Following an investigation into the incident, the SIU has pressed charges againt Valerie Briffa, a former Peel police officer who has since resigned from the force.
Briffa is charged with criminal negligence causing bodily harm, assault with a weapon, and careless use of firearm.
Briffa was arrested at the SIU's offices today (Thursday, July 16) and subsequently released on a promise to appear and an undertaking, in which she is prevented from speaking with (or being in proximity to) witnesses and possessing firearms or other weapons.
She is required to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Brampton on August 4, 2020.
The SIU is an arm's length agency that investigates reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault.
