Death of Brampton man, 19, in Mississauga leaves family 'torn apart'

A young Brampton man who died after a shooting in Mississauga last month is being described by family and friends as a person who "put a smile on all of our faces."

Kamar McIntosh, 19, died after he was shot several times on Thursday, April 27 at a business establishment in the area of Hurontario Street and King Street East in Mississauga at about 3:25 p.m. 

Peel Regional Police said McIntosh was found suffering from gunshot wounds and was taken to hospital, where he later died of his injuries.

A GoFundMe page has raised more than $2,100 to help cover the costs of his funeral.

According to the page, his death has left family and friends "ill-spirited and broken hearted."

Man called 'ambitious and caring'

"As family and friends of Kamar, we are all torn apart by what has happened. He was a very ambitious and caring young man who put a smile on all of our faces," it reads.

The page says the fundraising goal is $17,000 and that family members and friends hope to raise that amount by Thursday.

Police say McIntosh is Peel Region's fifth homicide of the year. No arrests have been made.

Officers are looking for at least one suspect, described as a black male, just under five feet tall with a medium build, wearing a baseball cap and black hoodie.

Investigators say they would like to speak to witnesses who were at the establishment at the time of the murder.  

Police are asking the public for any surveillance video from the area or dash cam video taken in the area around the time of the shooting.   

Anyone with information is asked to call investigators at Peel Regional Police's Homicide and Missing Persons Bureau at (905) 453-2121.
