Peel regional police and paramedics were called an industrial plaza in the Mid-Way Boulevard and Columbus Road area just before 8:15 p.m.

When emergency services arrived, they located a male victim who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say the victim was in a parked vehicle at the plaza when a gunman approached and shot him at close range.
