Peel Region’s seventh homicide for 2021 is a woman who was found shot to death late Wednesday.

Responding to gunshots in the area of Ninth Line and Burnhamthorpe Road in Mississauga, Peel Regional Police discovered this was not just a shooting scene but a homicide.

The woman was found with “obvious signs of trauma” in a parking lot across the street from 3445 Ninth Line with no vital signs and was declared deceased on the scene.

Police say they have no update on potential suspects.

They are also working on identifying the deceased woman.

Peel Police are planning an update at the scene this morning.

This shooting comes on the heels of Peel’s arrest of two men involved in the May 29th shooting homicide of Naim Akl at the Chickenland take out restaurant just 2 km. to the east.

But at this time it is not believed to be related.

We apologize, but this video has failed to load.

It’s a busy time for Peel Police, currently engaged in a nationwide manhunt for the third suspect in the Chickenland murder in which there were five people shot in a hail of bullets and a 13-year-old girl shot at.

While the gunfire killed 25-year-old Akl, the other victims — his mother and father, a brother and a staff member — are all expected to recover.

Naqash Abbasi, 31, of Brampton and Suliman Raza, 25, of Mississauga were arrested and charged with first-degree murder and five counts of attempted murder.

Now the focus is on Anand Nath, 20, who remains on the run and believed to be in Montreal, although police do not rule out any potential location.

If you see him, he is considered armed and dangerous.

“This was a horrific act of violence which resulted in loss of life and serious injury to the surviving victims. These incidents shatter community safety and will be responded to accordingly with a commitment to bring those responsible to justice while protecting the public,” said Peel Police Chief Nishan Duraiappah in a release.

Peel Police are extremely concerned about the gunplay and violence in Mississauga, as are the residents.

The Chicklenland case has rocked the Erin Mills neighbourhood which will be further shaken by this latest killing — a woman shot near a storage company and tree service but which is an otherwise rural area that sits in between Mississauga and Oakville, near Highway 403.

At this point it is not believed to be connected to the Chickenland case and a motive is not clear.

What is clear is normally quiet part of Mississauga has been deadly in recent weeks.
