Teen Seriously Injured After Being Shot By Police in Mississauga Robbery
A 15-year-old boy is in hospital after he was shot by Peel police in connection with a robbery in Mississauga early Thursday, the Special Investigations Unit says.
Police were sent to a robbery call at a gas station in the plaza at Creditview Rd. and Britannia Rd. W. at 1:50 a.m.
The initial call reported three young males were involved.
Two of the young males fled in a grey vehicle before police arrived and a third teen tried to rob another business, said SIU spokesperson Jason Gennaro.
The teen also tried - but was unable - to enter three vehicles with people sitting inside.
Police arrived, finding the boy outside of the bank in the plaza.
There was an interaction and one police officer discharged a firearm.
An insauga.com reader reported hearing “a few gunshots.”
The teen was rushed to hospital where’s he currently in serious but stable condition.
Six investigators and two forensic investigators have been assigned to the case.
The plaza at Creditview and Britannia will be closed for several hours for the investigation, Gennaro said at 8:25 a.m., and all businesses are affected.
The SIU is asking anyone with information to contact the lead investigator at 1-800-787-8529. and to upload video evidence through the SIU website.
The SIU is an arm's length agency that investigates reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault.
