A 23-year-old man has died after an overnight shooting in Malton.
The incident happened on Lancaster Ave., in the Goreway and Derry roads area.
Police were called to the scene just after 4 o’clock Saturday morning after receiving a call from a male party saying his friend had been shot, police told 680News.
Peel police say Mario Barnes was shot in the chest in a basement apartment.
Peel EMS confirm to 680News that the victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
The coroner has been called and the Homicide Bureau are being briefed Saturday morning before they canvas the area.
“Anybody who may have heard or seen anybody walking down the street at that time, maybe saw a vehicle leaving the area at that time, or heard the situation or were woken up and not sure why they were woken up – those are all people we want to speak to because sometimes even the smallest detail makes a big difference in a homicide investigation,” Const. Fiona Thivierge said.
