Four people were shot in Brampton early Monday, Peel police say, after being called to a residence in the area of Julian Drive and Fitzpatrick Drive for reports of gunfire just before 6 a.m.

Police confirmed two of the victims, a man and a woman, are being treated in a trauma centre, while two other men  have been taken to a local hospital.

All of the injuries are considered non-life threatening "at this time."

Earlier in the night, police were called to the home for a noise complaint, said Const. Heather Cannon.

At the time, there were "several people at the residence," but the shooting occurred outside the home, Cannon added.

A resident of the area did speak with CBC News but asked to remain anonymous for "safety reasons."

They called the whole weekend "a nightmare," adding that their son saw someone injured in their backyard.

The resident said they had called the police Friday, Saturday, and Sunday due to noise complaints. 

"Saturday night the music was blaring, unbearably blaring," they said.

The resident also estimated "150 to 200" people were at the house. "There were cars lined up all along Julian," they said.

Another person living in the neighbourhood, Marie Rose Rocca, said she thinks there were 200-300 people at the house on Saturday night. 

"We were going for a walk and there was a ton of cars everywhere. People were walking in half-naked," said Rocca. "The noise was so loud you could hear it all around the area."

Both residents believe the property was sold to an investor. 

Another house party was dispersed in a neighbourhood just a few minutes away over the weekend. Two hundred people were believed to have been there.

Police are currently investigating whether the residence was a short-term rental property.

As of right now, there is no suspect information and police are urging anyone with information to come forward or call Crime Stoppers.

Julian Drive is currently closed between Castlemore Road and Fitzpatrick Drive.
