In Mississauga, cops say that just after 8 p.m. officers responded to reports of shots fired on Hull St., near Airport and Derry Rds.

Three victims suffering gunshot wounds were located. Two of the injured were taken to a trauma centre while the third was taken to a local hospital.

A 21-year-old Brampton man died as a result of the injuries he sustained.

The second male was treated and later released from hospital.

A third male involved in the disturbance was treated by paramedics for a non-gunshot related injury, transported to a hospital for further treatment and later released.

On Saturday, detectives arrested Jastaran Sandhu, 18, of Mississauga. He has been charged with First-Degree Murder.

Const. Himmet Gill told CP24 said police didn’t know how many people were in attendance at the bash.

“The parties had dispersed after hearing multiple gunshots,” he said, adding detectives did not have suspect descriptions.

“At this point, we don’t know if they fled on foot or if they fled in a vehicle.”

He added: “So, it’s very crucial to understand what had transpired here first to see what the events, how they unfolded.”

The Peel Regional Police homicide unit has now taken over the investigation. Detectives are urging anyone who attended the party or who was driving in the vicinity with a dashboard camera are asked to contact them.
