Peel Homicides Canada Day Long Weekend

Peel is in the news again with another double shooting that took place this past Canada Day weekend within minutes and kilometres of one another.

The first shooting took place in Brampton around 11:30pm on Monday. Shots rang out and two men were shot, Glenford Asan Reid, 31, was pronounced dead at the scene while the other individual was taken to the hospital and treated. A young child was grazed by a bullet in this cowardly attack. The shooter is still on the loose.

About half an hour after Reid was murdered, shots rang out at an apartment building less than 20 kilometres away in Malton. Gunfire was heard in the apartment on Darcel Avenue just before midnight and officers discovered one man dead when they arrived. Orrin Marlon Earle, pictured above, was 28 years old when he was found in his third floor apartment.

Both homicides are the 13th and 14th for the peel region this year.
