Published March 12, 2019 at 7:10 pm


Multiple businesses remain closed in the wake of a brazen daylight shooting that left a 32-year-old man dead in Mississauga.

Peel Police and members of the Homicide and Missing Persons Bureau are currently investigating the fourth murder of the year in the region.

At approximately 11:18 a.m. on Monday, March 11, police responded to reports of a shooting in a commercial plaza located at 700 Dundas Street East.

Reports indicate the shooting took place in front of Huf Gym.

Police on scene located a male victim suffering from what appeared to be a gunshot wound. He was transported to a trauma centre, but succumbed to his injuries.

Police say that while residents are now able to pick up their cars from the plaza, businesses will remain closed for now.

“For the individuals who have vehicles in the parking lot of this location, they can now be removed,” Peel police said. “The businesses at this location will remain closed until further notice, thank you for your patience.”

Two suspects are being sought by police, and are described as two men who fled the area wearing dark hoodies. A blue Honda Civic was located on fire in the area of Rymal Road and Tomken Road, with possible ties to the incident.

Several media reports have indicated that the deceased–who has not yet been identified–was a member of the Hell’s Angels gang. Peel police Const. Bancroft Wright told insauga.com that Peel Police have not yet confirmed that information.

Wright says police are still in the process of notifying the victim’s next of kin.

Police are asking anyone with information related to this investigation to contact the Homicide and Missing Persons Bureau at (905) 453-2121, ext. 3205. Information may also be left anonymously by calling Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).


Peel Police have reported that the businesses at this location are now open.
