The 23-year-old found suffering from a gunshot wound inside a vehicle that crashed on Highway 410 in Mississauga has been identified as Jason Ramkishun, from Brampton.
Emergency crews were called to the scene near Courtney Park Drive just after 1 a.m. Tuesday.
The vehicle was possibly heading northbound on the highway when it careened out of control and ended up in a ditch.
Paramedics said the driver was without vital signs upon arrival. He was rushed to hospital where he later died.
Peel police said the vehicle showed signs of gunshot evidence but there has been no word on where the shooting took place.
“We don’t know what happened … (OPP) got the call as a single vehicle accident into a ditch. Investigation later revealed there’s more to it than just that … this is a shooting now and the homicide unit is involved,” Const. Harinder Sohi explained.
The northbound lanes of the 410 were closed for several hours for the investigation. -CINEWS
