ONTARIO’S Peel Regional Police have charged a 16-year-old male in relation to a homicide investigation.

On Thursday, August 13, emergency services received a call for a medical assist for an unconscious man located on a pathway in the area of Queen Mary Drive and Heathwood Drive in the City of Brampton. When officers arrived on scene, a man was located showing obvious signs of trauma and was transported to a local hospital with vital signs absent.  He was pronounced deceased at the hospital a short time later. 

The victim has been identified as Surajdeep Singh, a 22-year-old man from Brampton.
