Peel Regional Police say they responded to the shooting around 5:10 p.m. in the area of Drinkwater Road and Queen Street in Brampton.

The victim was later rushed to hospital with life-threatening injuries, police said in an update.

Police have not said if any arrests have been made and have not released any suspect information.

It was a busy weekend for fire-arms related calls for Peel police with two people charged on Friday after a random police check in Brampton led to the discovery of a loaded handgun, and a Toronto man arrested on Saturday after police found a pistol during a traffic stop.
