A shooting in Mississauga has sent a 17-year-old boy to a trauma centre late Thursday.

“The victim’s injuries are non-life threatening,” said Peel Regional Police Const. Bancroft Wright.

Emergency crews were dispatched to Hurontario St. and Ceremonial Dr., just north of Eglinton Ave., at 11:31 p.m.

Multiple shell casings littered the street.

Paramedics treated the boy for a single gunshot wound before transporting him to hospital.

“A first-floor window was shot out,” in a nearby apartment, Wright confirmed, “as well as a vehicle.”

There’s no suspect information.

Investigators are looking at the possibility that it was a drive-by shooting.

Anyone with information is asked to phone 905-453-2121 or Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-8477.
