One man dead after altercation between two neighbours in Mississauga

An altercation between two individuals in Mississauga has left one man dead, Peel police say.

Peel Regional Police (PRP) say they received a call just before 10:45am today reporting an assault in the area of Glen Erin Drive and Britannia Road in Mississauga.

A 34-year-old man has died as a result of his injuries, said Const. Himmet Gill at the scene.

“We do have a 21-year-old male in custody in relation to this event,” Gill said.

It is alleged there was an altercation between two adult males and that one male died as a result of his injuries.

Both of the people lived in the same residence where the assault happened, Gill said.

In a news released Saturday evening, police said the 21-year-old man was charged with second-degree murder. He will appear in court on Sunday.

The attack has people living in the 260-unit Britannia Glen Co-operative stunned, said neighbour Holley Wasdell.

Wasdell said she has lived there for 28 years without anything like this happening.

“It’s disheartening. Very disheartening. It’s the worst thing that’s ever happened here,” she said.

Police are asking anyone with information about the incident to call investigators at 905-453-2121 extension 3205 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
