One man dead in Stoney Creek Hamilton

Police have not yet released a suspect description or any other details after a man was shot to death last night (March 20) in central Mississauga.

Homicide investigators with Peel Regional Police are saying little about Mississauga’s second murder of 2023 other than a man was shot and killed in the area of Dream Crest Rd. and Fallingbrook Dr., near Rick Hansen Secondary School northwest of the City Centre area, just before 8 p.m.

Police have not yet identified the victim.

Several people who commented on the Peel police Twitter post related to the shooting said they heard as many as four gunshots in quick succession.

As they proceed with their investigation, police are appealing to anyone with information on the shooting to call Homicide detectives at 905-453-2121, ext. 3205.

Shortly after the shooting death, Mayor Bonnie Crombie took to Twitter to express concern over yet another such incident in the city.

I’m extremely concerned that there has been another deadly shooting in Mississauga this week. My thoughts are with all those impacted by this tragic event,” she wrote. 

Early this past Saturday morning, a double shooting in the Lakeshore area of Mississauga took another man’s life. It was the first murder in the city this year.

The 1 a.m. shooting took place outside Canvas Art Bar, at Lakeshore Rd. and Elizabeth St. in Port Credit.

The other person who was shot was taken to hospital in critical condition.

Police have not yet identified any suspects in that shooting.
