Police have laid charges against a Mississauga man in relation to a shooting earlier this year.

Around 6:43 p.m. on Saturday, February 22, police responded to reports of a male shot in the parking lot of a business at Mavis and Britannia.

“The initial investigation revealed that a struggle ensued between the victim and one of the suspects,” said police. “The suspect brandished a firearm and shot the victim.”

The victim underwent surgery and is recovering from his injuries.

Officers executed multiple search warrants throughout the five-month investigation and learned that the suspect had allegedly fled the country, leading investigators to work with the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL).

Police say the suspect later returned to the country.

On Sunday, July 19, 22 year old Mississauga man Shahid Todd was arrested and charged with:

  • Attempted murder
  • Aggravated assault
  • Carrying a concealed weapon
  • Point firearm
  • Discharge firearm with intent
  • Unauthorized possession of a firearm
  • Possession of a loaded prohibited or restricted firearm
  • Occupant of a motor vehicle knowing there was a firearm
  • Robbery

Todd was held for a bail hearing to attend the Ontario Court of Justice in Brampton.

Anyone with further information regarding this incident is asked to call police at 905-453–2121, ext. 1133.
