Police are searching for a man suspected to be involved in a homicide incident that killed a teenager and injured another male in Mississauga.

On Saturday (October 14) at 12:51 a.m., officers responded to a disturbance call in the area of Lakeshore and Cawthra Road. Two male victims suffering from stab wounds were located and rushed to a local hospital, then later transferred to a trauma centre in Toronto. 

One of the victims succumbed to his injuries and the second suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries.

On Friday, October 20, police arrested and charged Trayon Johnson (23 year-old from Mississauga) for second degree murder.

Another suspect is still on the run. Police have issued a Canada-wide arrest warrant for Richard Ireland, 18, wanted for the same charge.

Ireland is described as a white male, 5’10”, 130 pounds, with brown eyes and shoulder length brown hair. It is believed he is actively evading the police.

If seen, you are asked not to approach him and instead contact police at (905) 453-2121, ext. 3205. Information may also be left anonymously by calling Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), by visiting or by sending a text message to CRIMES (274637) with the word ‘PEEL’ and then your tip.
