A 27-year-old Brampton man has been arrested and charged in connection with two shootings that took place Sunday morning — one which involved the death of a Georgetown man, Peel police said.
Officers responded to the two shootings in the early morning on Sept. 2.
The first occurred at 12:43 a.m., in the area of Vodden Street East, west of Kennedy Road in Brampton.
A man and woman were transported to the hospital with serious injuries. The man, who has been identified as Clifford Correia, 27, from Brampton, died in hospital.

A man gunned down in the second of two deadly shootings in Brampton on Sunday made an emotional social media post about the first shooting hours before he was killed.
Peel Regional Police identified Derrick McKeown, 33, from Georgetown, as the victim in a 6:35 a.m. shooting on Townley Cres. His death came about six hours after two taxi passengers were shot around 12:45 a.m. in the area of Vodden St. E., west of Kennedy Rd. Cliff Corrreia, 27, of Brampton, was killed and a woman was wounded.
In a post on McKeown’s Facebook page at 3:46 a.m. Sunday, he said the wounded woman was mother to his son. “OMG baby stay with us and don’t go to heaven. Please Lord please don’t take her from me. You make sure she doesn’t die. She was shot,” McKeown wrote
