A press conference was held with Peel and Halton Regional Police regarding the shootings.

A man injured in the shootings in the Greater Toronto Area on Monday that left three dead, including the suspect, has a slim chance of surviving his injuries. This was stated by Halton Region Police Chief Stephen Tanner at a press conference on Thursday.

He is an elderly international student 28-year-old who was shot while working in an auto shop in Milton, Ontario. He is currently surviving on life support.

“We do not want to release the name of the injured man out of respect for his family, but we expect to release his identity at a later date.

According to Chief Tanner, the first victim of the shooting in Milton was Shakeel Ashraf, the owner of Mk Collision Center, who was killed at the scene.

The third victim was also an employee of the auto center. He was shot in the leg and discharged from hospital, he added.

In a joint press conference Thursday morning, the Regional Police of Peel, Halton Regional Police and Hamilton Police provided an update on the investigation into Monday's shootings in the Greater Toronto Area.
