2 charged in Milton home shooting, 3 suspects still at large, police say
While two men have been charged in connection with a shooting in Milton that left one person dead on Sunday, Halton police say they're still looking for three suspects.
In a news release on Monday afternoon, police allege a group of people approached a house on Gibson Crescent in Milton at about 5 a.m. on Sunday, intent on robbing the home.
"Upon entering the residence, they were confronted by an occupant and a number of gunshots were fired," the release reads.
Two men were arrested when police arrived. One male was pronounced dead at the scene, police say.
The identity of the homicide victim has not been released.
Police say a 22-year-old man from Milton was charged with second-degree murder, while a 20-year-old man from Oshawa was charged with breaking and entering and possession of an unauthorized firearm.
Both accused are set to appear in Milton court on Tuesday.
Officers say the investigation is still ongoing, with detectives looking for information on three outstanding suspects that left the scene in a light-coloured vehicle. Police said they think it is a Dodge Charge with a sunroof and black wheels.
Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to contact investigators or submit a tip anonymously to CrimeStoppers.
