Two men dead after shooting at Father’s Day event in Brampton, Ont., police say

BRAMPTON, Ont. — Police say two men were killed in a shooting at a Father’s Day event in Brampton, Ont. early Sunday morning.

Peel Regional Police say emergency crews got a call just after 2 a.m. about shots fired in the area of Gateway Boulevard and Queen Street East.

Police spokeswoman Const. Jennifer Dagg says officers arrived to find two men outside the event venue suffering from gunshot wounds, but she could not confirm if they were shot outside or inside the venue.

One man was pronounced dead and the other was taken to hospital, where he died from his injuries.

Dagg said in a phone interview that it was a Father’s Day event, but she did not know how many people were in attendance.

She says police have not identified a suspect and they’re asking the public for any information or surveillance footage that could help them figure out what happened.
