A 34-year-old man who was fatally shot inside a Brampton high-rise late Wednesday night has been identified by the Peel Regional Police. Bual Moua, who has no identification, had been shot inside the building around 10:50 p.m. in the area of Lawson Avenue and Roycroft Road, after police heard gunshots. An autopsy on Moua’s body is expected to be performed Friday.

Nearby schools also issued a “Code Yellow” advisory to staff. The nearby King Edward Public School had its curfew immediately lifted after the shooting. The police have not yet determined if there is any connection between the shooting and the shooting of 17-year-old Antwon Muhammad on Tuesday night, nor have they released a possible motive. The shooting itself was the result of a “revenge incident,” Peel police Chief Jennifer Evans told media, and by Thursday afternoon, Peel officials had recovered two guns from the area, as well as the bullet that hit Moua.
