A man is dead after a “targeted” shooting in Brampton’s west end, police say.

Peel Regional Police Const. Heather Cannon said emergency crews responded to the area of Wanless and Veterans drives, near Mississauga Road, shortly after 5:30 a.m. on Monday.

“Peel police and first responders arrived on scene and located an adult male who had been shot inside a vehicle,” Cannon told reporters.

She said the victim was in a vehicle that was on the driveway of a home.

“Paramedics attempted to render care to this male and unfortunately he succumbed to his injuries at the scene,” Cannon said.

“But at this point, after speaking with homicide investigators, it does appear that this has been a targeted incident,” Cannon added.

Anyone with information was asked to contact police or Crime Stoppers anonymously.
