Police have charged Eliazar Henry, 18, of Mississauga in connection with a shooting incident which left one person injured in Brampton last year.

“Investigators with the 22 Division Criminal Investigation Bureau have charged a man with attempted murder, robbery, and numerous firearm-related offences in a Brampton shooting incident that occurred on December 24, 2020,” the Peel Regional Police said in a statement.

On December 24, 2020, at 5:45 p.m., officers responded to a residence on Hubbell Road in the City of Brampton for reports of a shooting.

Upon arrival, it was learned that the victim, a 24-year-old man, and two other males were involved in an altercation, which resulted in the victim being shot. The suspects fled the area in a vehicle, and the victim was transported to a trauma centre.

A lengthy and thorough investigation was conducted, with multiple search warrants, identifying both suspects involved in the attempted murder investigation.

Eliazar Henry, an 18-year-old man from Mississauga, was charged with Attempted Murder, Intentionally Discharge Firearm Recklessly, Knowledge of Unauthorized Possession of Firearm, Occupant of Motor Vehicle Knowing there was a Firearm, Possession of Property Obtained by Crime, Robbery, Disguise with Intent,
Possession of Weapon for Dangerous Purpose, and Attempt to Commit an Indictable Offence.

He was held for a bail hearing and attended the Ontario Court of Justice in Brampton on October 16, 2021, the Peel Regional Police said, adding that a 17-year-old male from the city of Brampton is currently wanted in connection with the incident and warrant has been issued for his arrest.

The Peel Regional Police also added that a general provision of the Youth Criminal Justice Act (Y.C.J.A.) prohibits the release of the name of a Young Person and, therefore, the identities of the Young Persons charged in this investigation are protected.
