Peel police have identified a woman who died following a shooting at a gas station in Mississauga.
The victim is Pawanpreet Kaur, 21, from Brampton. Police said Monday that Kaur was an employee of the gas station.
Police were called to the station near Creditview Road and Britannia Road around 10:40 p.m. Saturday.
When officers arrived, they found the woman suffering from gunshot wounds. Life saving measures were attempted but the woman died.
Police say they believe it was a targeted incident. The homicide unit has taken over the investigation.
Officers are looking for a male suspect.
In a news release on Monday, police said the suspect wore a three-quarter-length dark winter jacket with a hood, dark winter boots, dark pants, a dark winter toque and white gloves. It appears that he was smoking a cigarette.
Police said he did not pull the hood up over his head until shortly before shooting the victim at close range.
After canvassing the area for video and interviewing witnesses, police have determined that the suspect was on foot in the area three hours before the shooting.
Earlier, he was seen crossing over Britannia Road, east of the intersection, and crossing Creditview Road, north of the intersection.
After the shooting, he was seen running westbound across Creditview Road, then westbound on Britannia Road, and then westbound onto Camgreen Circle.
