A man is dead and two women are fighting for their lives in hospital after a shooting along the Caledon and Brampton border on Monday night.
Emergency crews were called to a house on Mayfield Road, east of Airport Road, around 11:30 p.m. for reports of a shooting.
Paramedics confirm a man was pronounced dead at the scene and two women were rushed to hospital in critical condition.
Based on information from the Town of Caledon released earlier this year, it lists the address as using the property as an illegal trucking company.
Meanwhile, Ontario Provincial Police investigators tell CityNews they are investigating after a burnt-out pickup truck was found in the area of Olde Baseline Road and Creditview Road. Police are trying to determine if it is connected to the fatal shooting.
No suspect information has been made available. Police say there is no threat to public safety.
A neighbour tells CityNews the tenants who live in the basement of the home reported hearing many shots. They say the shooter, or shooters, fled the area in a vehicle.
“The investigation is in its early stages and no further details can be released at this time,” reads a release from Caledon OPP. “Residents of the area should expect to see a large police presence.”
Investigators are asking anyone who has information on the incident to contact the Caledon OPP.
