Man Arrested In 2009 Murder

Peel Regional Police have arrested a man in connection with a 2009 shooting.

Eric Carty, 30, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Kirk Matthews, 24.

Emergency crews found Matthews with gunshot wounds at a townhouse on San Pietro Way on December 7, 2009.

He was allegedly shot around 3:30am as he got out of a parked SUV.

At the time, detectives said Matthews was targeted and likely the victim of a drug deal gone bad.

An arrest warrant was issued for Carty a week later.

Peel’s guns and gangs unit arrested Carty on January 27 and he was later charged at 31 Division in Toronto.
