Correction: SIU Investigating Injury to Woman in Relation to Mississauga Shooting

Case Number: 15-OFD-046

Mississauga (27 March, 2015) --- Ontario’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) is continuing to probe the death of a 22-year-old man who was fatally shot on March 20, 2015 in Mississauga during an interaction with police. Contrary to an SIU media release issued on March 21, the SIU has in fact also been investigating the injury sustained by 21-year-old Suzan Zreik as part of the entire investigation. Ms. Zreik was interviewed by SIU investigators in relation to her injuries on March 23, 2015.

Preliminary information indicates the following:

  • On Friday, March 20, 2015, Peel Regional Police received a call for assistance at 3070 Queen Frederica Drive in Mississauga; 
  • Officers arrived at Unit 38 at approximately 10:40 p.m.;
  • There was an interaction between police and the 22-year-old male, and he was shot multiple times. He was pronounced dead at the scene;
  • Ms. Zreik, who was in her home at the time of the incident, sustained a gunshot wound and was taken to hospital for treatment.

The SIU has assigned five investigators and three forensic investigators to probe the circumstances of this incident. 

Anyone who may have information regarding this case is asked to contact the lead investigator at 416-622-1935 or 1-800-787-8529 ext. 1935.

The SIU is an arm’s length agency that investigates reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault. Under the Police Services Act, the Director of the SIU must

  • consider whether an officer has committed a criminal offence  in connection with the incident under investigation
  • depending on the evidence, lay a criminal charge against the officer if appropriate or close the file without any charges being laid
  • report the results of any investigations to the Attorney General.
