Peel Police have arrested and charged a Mississauga man and are on the look out for a young Brampton man in connection to a shooting that took place on Christmas Eve 2020.

According to police, officers were called to a home on Hubbell Road in Brampton just before 6 p.m. on the night in question to reports of a shooting.

When they arrived on the scene, a 24-year-old man was found suffering from a gunshot wound and was eventually transported to a local trauma centre.

In the meantime, police said they learned that the victim and two other men were involved in an altercation prior to the shooting. The suspects fled the scene in a vehicle prior to officers’ arrival, police said.

“A lengthy and thorough investigation was conducted, with multiple search warrants, identifying both suspects involved in the attempted murder investigation,” a press release said.

Most recently, police arrested 18-year-old Eliazar Henry from Mississauga who is charged with:

  • Attempted Murder
  • Intentionally Discharge Firearm Recklessly
  • Knowledge of Unauthorized Possession of Firearm
  • Occupant of Motor Vehicle Knowing there was a Firearm
  • Possession of Property Obtained by Crime
  • Robbery
  • Disguise with Intent
  • Possession of Weapon for Dangerous Purpose
  • Attempt to Commit an Indictable Offence

Henry was held for a bail hearing and appeared in the Ontario Court of Justice in Brampton on Saturday (Oct. 16).

A 17-year-old Brampton man is also wanted in connection to the case. Police said a warrant has been issued for his arrest as he faces the following charges:

  • Attempted Murder
  • Intentionally Discharge Firearm Recklessly
  • Knowledge of Unauthorized Possession of Firearm
  • Occupant of Motor Vehicle Knowing there was a Firearm
  • Possession of Property Obtained by Crime
  • Robbery

A general provision of the Youth Criminal Justice Act (Y.C.J.A.) prohibits the release of the name of a Young Person and, therefore, the identities of the Young Persons charged in this investigation are protected.
