Man dead after ‘interaction’ involving Peel police responding to Brampton apartment call

A 22-year-old man has died after Peel Regional Police say there was an “interaction” involving officers who were responding to reports of the sounds of gunshots being heard at a Brampton apartment building.

Ontario’s police watchdog, the Special Investigations Unit (SIU), invoked its mandate after tweets from police said emergency crews were called to an apartment building on Charolais Boulevard, just east of McMurchy Avenue South, at around 4:10 p.m.

Before 5 p.m., an update was posted saying paramedics took a person to a local hospital and there was a plea for anyone who saw or heard anything to call officers.

Almost two hours later, an update was posted reiterating the sounds of gunshots were heard inside the building.
