A man was killed on Wednesday night during a home invasion in Brampton, police said. The victim, believed to be in his mid-30s, was shot multiple times and his home in an apartment complex on Muskoka Avenue was ransacked. He was rushed to hospital in a critical condition and later died of his injuries.
Sergeant Meghan Foster told the Toronto Star that a team of investigators was combing through security footage as a result of the shooting.
There is no suspect information available at this time. Police are appealing to witnesses to come forward with information regarding this incident.
According to the Toronto Sun, police responded to a call of a “man down” at the Ontario Memorial Gardens Apartments, but the man’s name had not been confirmed until now.
Police have said the suspect forced his way into the apartment, where he reportedly confronted the victims’ boyfriend. No one else was injured in the incident.
Neighbors told CTV, the local station, that the victim was a well-known boxer who worked as a bouncer in local bars.
