Two more teens have been charged with attempted murder following a daylight shooting at a Brampton high school last year.
The shooting happened around 12:00 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 18. Peel Regional Police say officers were called to a high school in the area of The Gore Rd. and Gardenbrooke Tr. in Brampton after an 18-year-old male student was shot.
Police confirmed the shooting happened in the back parking lot of the school and said the 18-year-old victim suffered life-threatening injuries.
The teen was rushed to hospital, and the victim’s condition was upgraded to non-life threatening. The next day, police arrested a 17-year-old and charged the teen with attempted murder and failing to comply with a release order.
Now, police have charged another two youths in connection to the shooting. Police say the two additional suspects allegedly assisted the 17-year-old in carrying out the shooting. Both suspects have been charged with aggravated assault and attempted murder.
The suspects were released from police custody and are scheduled to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Brampton at a later date. None of the allegations have been proven in court.
Police believe the attack was a targeted incident and that the suspect was seen fleeing the scene after the shooting. The male suspect was believed to be armed and dangerous following the shooting.
Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call Peel Regional Police at 905-453-2121 ext. 213 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
