Brampton man, 23, shot dead
Peel Regional Police's homicide bureau is investigating after a 23-year-old man was found shot dead in Brampton Sunday night.
Just before midnight, police responded to a 911 call at a two-storey duplex located at 54 Newby Court.
Police found a victim inside with "obvious signs of trauma as a result of a gunshot wound."
He was pronounced dead at the scene. He has not been identified by police.
CBC's Trevor Dunn was at the scene Monday and spoke to Newby Court resident Angie Kahn, who has lived on the street for two years and said it’s a quiet area.
"That’s shocking," she said when told of the shooting. "Especially when you’re in a quiet neighbourhood and you don’t hear any disturbance, you don’t hear anything at all."
Other neighours told CBC there has been trouble at the house before.
Peel Regional Police Const. George Tudos told CBC News police are asking for the public’s help in their investigation.
"We have set up a command post and we’re hoping if anyone has any information as to what happened at this residence they will contact our homicide investigators," said Tudos.
Anyone with information is asked to call Peel Regional Police homicide and missing person’s bureau, at (905) 453-2121, ext. 3205.
