The investigation into last week’s shooting of a Brampton, Ont., man has been taken over by homicide officers because investigators believe the victim “may have been shot with a bullet that was on the street at the time of the shooting,” the local police force said.
According to a statement from Peel Regional Police, 31-year-old Nadesan Kushar got into an argument with someone that afternoon. As he drove away from the argument on Rocel Street near Peel Street, Kushar crashed his car into a brick fence. One witness told the Post that Kushar was inside the vehicle, “smashing his hands against the windshield as if he wanted to escape.”
Kushar exited the vehicle and jumped over a nearby fence, witnesses told the Post. Kushar ran into a nearby community garden before police arrived. He was rushed to a nearby hospital where he later died. Police released few details about the investigation, but said they took over the investigation “out of an abundance of caution to ensure this is not considered a random act.”
Kushar’s death is Peel’s third homicide of the year.
