A 28-year-old man is in hospital with life-threatening injuries after being shot by officers at a Mississauga townhouse complex.
Peel Regional Police said undercover officers were investigating a vehicle at Southampton Drive and Eglinton Avenue in connection with a drug investigation at around 7:30 p.m.
“When officers went to approach the vehicle, the vehicle drove at them,” Const. Sarah Patten told CP24 at the scene. “So the officer fired several shots at the driver of the vehicle, who was alone in the vehicle at the time, striking the driver.”
