Police said the darker car is a suspect vehicle from a shooting on April 22 in the area of Overlea Drive and Overlea Court.

Officers were called to an address just after 9:30 p.m. for reports of shots fired and found two victims inside a house — a 26-year-old Milton man and a 19-year-old Kitchener man.

A 26-year-old Brampton man suffering from gunshot wounds was also later found and all of them were taken to hospital with serious and critical injuries.

Police said a group is allegedly behind a home invasion that led to the exchange of gunfire and that two men who went into the home were among those sent to hospital.

The Brampton man has been charged and police said further arrests and charges are anticipated.
