Peel police shooting in Brampton

Peel Regional Police say they’ll provide an update Friday morning (July 21) on their investigation into the brutal murder of a 24-year-old Brampton man who was carjacked and left for dead at the side of the road while delivering pizza to a home in the north end of Mississauga in the early morning hours of July 9.

Peel homicide Insp. Phillip Bryant will speak to the media at police headquarters in Mississauga starting at 10 a.m.

Police didn’t say on Thursday afternoon if they’ll be announcing an arrest or arrests in the case on Friday morning, only that they’ll provide an update on their investigation into the violent killing of Gurvinder Nath, described by family and friends as a hardworking international student who was trying to make ends meet since arriving from India in 2021.

Nath died in hospital last Friday (July 14) after being beaten and left for dead at the side of the road five days earlier as he delivered food to a home in the Britannia and Creditview Rds. area of northwest Mississauga shortly after 2 a.m.

That area of the city has been plagued by gun violence and shooting deaths in recent years.

As police continue their hunt for the killer or killers, Nath will be remembered at a candlelight vigil this Saturday (July 22) at the Paramount Fine Foods Centre in Mississauga, starting at 7 p.m.

Meanwhile, a GoFundMe page has been set up to raise money to send Nath’s body back home to family in India and cover funeral expenses.

Gurvinder Nath was murdered in a July 9 carjacking in Mississauga.
