A Toronto man has been charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death last night (Nov. 2) of a man near Meadowvale Community Centre in Mississauga’s north end.

The victim, identified late this afternoon (Nov. 3) as Nathaniel Whyte, 26, of no fixed address, was found on a pathway south of the community centre, which is located just east of Meadowvale Town Centre shopping mall.

Peel Regional Police say they received the call at about 9:45 p.m. and that the man, who was “suffering from an apparent gunshot wound,” was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.

Homicide detectives investigating Peel’s 26th murder of the year arrested a man this afternoon.

Police say they believe the murder is an isolated incident.

Peel police brass applauded investigators for their fast work.

“Gun violence will not be tolerated by our community or (police) service. We are very thankful to both for this quick arrest and bringing this public safety threat to an end,” said Deputy Chief Nick Milinovich.

Kaream Salmon, 30, of Toronto, is charged with second-degree murder. He was held for a bail hearing and appeared in Brampton court this afternoon.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 905-453-2121 or Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

The deadly shooting is the latest in a rash of similar violent incidents that have shaken west Mississauga neighbourhoods so far in 2022.
