Peel police have charged a 20-year-old man in connection with a shooting in Brampton last year that left one man dead and a woman injured.
On September 22, 2021 at 4:45 p.m., police responded to a shots fired call at a home at Countryside Drive and Airport Road. They arrived to find a man, Guryod Khatra, 26, and a woman suffering from gunshot wounds.
Despite efforts to save his life, Khatra died on the spot. The woman was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries.
More than a year after the shooting, police announced Wednesday that charges have been filed in the case.
Jerome Downey-Apple, of Brampton, has been charged with first-degree murder and aggravated assault, police said.
He is being held on unrelated charges, police said.
They continue to ask anyone with information to contact homicide investigators at 905-453-2121. 3205 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
