Police search suspect in Mississauga restaurant shooting that left one dead and four injured

Peel Regional Police are trying to identify the suspect in a shooting at a local family restaurant in Mississauga that left one dead and four injured on Saturday night.

Four of the victims were from the same family.

Shortly before 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, the police were called to the Chickenland restaurant in a square near Collegeway Drive and Glen Erin, near Glen Erin Commons.

Police said an unknown man entered the store and started shooting staff.

Five people were shot dead – the 56-year-old owner, his 44-year-old wife, his two sons, 22 and 25, and a 58-year-old employee.

The 25-year-old son was pronounced dead at the scene while the other four were taken to hospital.

Police said the other four were in stable condition in a press release on Sunday.

When asked if the shooting was targeted, Constable. Danny Marttini told reporters it was an “isolated incident”.

“I don’t think anyone would want to be in the position where real fire is going through their door… scary, tragic and something we don’t want to see continue,” Marttini said on Sunday.

Police released a 20-second video on Sunday showing a person wearing a dark-colored hoodie and what appear to be gray sweatpants standing in front of a shop window before fleeing.

Anyone with information, dash cam or video footage is urged to contact the Office of Homicides and Missing Persons at 905-453-2121, ext. 3205.

Information may also be left anonymously by calling Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), or by visiting www.peelcrimestoppers.ca.
