A second man who had been shot turned up at a fire station near Hurontario and Steeles. It’s believed he was dropped off at the station. He is also fighting for his life.
Police were then alerted of a third man, who walked into a Brampton hospital with gunshot wounds. He is in stable condition.
Investigators are linking all three victims to the same shooting at the cemetery, and believe it was targeted.
They are looking for two suspect vehicles, only described as a Mercedes and light-coloured Honda.
