NRI Paramprit Dhinsa, known as "Parma", 23, was found bleeding from a gunshot, next to a car on Reindeer Dr., near Derry Rd. E. and Airport Rd., Malton area around 4 p.m. The shooting shut down traffic and drawing crowds of curious spectators, many of whom didn't learn of the killing until told by reporters.

Despite the efforts of Peel Paramedics to revive him, Dhinsa died in hospital.

According to NRI media source, the men (killers) demanded drugs and cash he was carrying and Dhinsa was shot point-blank when he refused to deliver.

Surinder Singh said, two men walked up to a car parked outside an address on Reindeer Dr. in the Malton area of the city and fired at least one shot through the driver's side window.

Parma' relative said:

  • Paramprit Dhinsa had dropped out of high school and now he was going to Humber College to get a business diploma to open his own business
  • He lived with his parents and younger brother, 19.
  • He was always laughing, always happy and really a good guy.
  • All we know is he was in the car, two guys came up and bang bang.
  • No one knows why this has happened.

The police told media that witness described as:

  • One suspect was a clean-shaven black man between 18-20 years old, about five-foot-seven and short black hair. He was wearing blue jeans, dark blue T-shirt and black Timberland shoes.
  • 2nd suspect is also black, between 14-18 years old, about five-foot-seven and shaven head. He was wearing dark blue jeans and a dark shirt with a yellow patch on the front.
