Two Mississauga Men Facing Charges in Connection with Nightclub Shooting
Two Mississauga men have been charged following a nightclub shooting.
Five people in total, including two from Brampton, are facing a total of 49 charges in connection with a shooting incident at the Thorold, Ont.-based L8 nightclub last fall.
Niagara police allege the shooting, which occurred in the early morning hours of Sept. 3, left five people with serious injuries.
Police say that on Feb. 28, members of the Niagara Regional Police Service—with the assistance of the Peel Regional Police, Toronto Police Service, Ottawa Police Service and the Provincial Weapons Enforcement Unit—executed three search warrants in the GTA following a six month investigation.
Police say 31-year-old Brampton man Jeremy Chambers, 26-year-old Mississauga man Jermaine Chapman, 21-year-old Scarborough man Shammar Miron, 28-year-old Mississauga man Junior Chapman and 22-year-old Brampton man Justice Marshall have been arrested in connection with the incident.
The suspects are facing a range of firearm, aggravated assault and breach of recognizance charges.
“These arrests are the culmination of a lengthy investigation and the cooperation with a number of our police partners. This sends a strong message that violence will not be tolerated in our community and those who choose to perpetrate such acts will be found and prosecuted. I am extremely proud of the relentless investigation our officers undertook in bringing this incident to a conclusion” said Niagara Regional Police Chief Bryan MacCulloch.
The charges have not been proven in court.
The accused were held in custody pending a bail hearing on Feb. 28.
