Police investigating shooting and carjacking in Mississauga


A police investigation is underway this evening.

Around 7:00 p.m. officers were called to the area of Burnhamthorpe Road and Confederation Parkway, where they were allegedly fired upon and returned fire.

Police say the shooting suspects fled and carjacked a vehicle with a child onboard.

The vehicle was later located by officers near Eglinton Avenue and Creditview Road.

“The child has been located safe and is with officers,” said police.

There’s a significant police presence in both areas as officers continue to search for the suspects, and a York Regional Police helicopter has been requested to assist the investigation.

Residents should avoid the area for now.

More information to come.
