Woman suffers horrific injuries after being shot by crossbow disguised as delivery

Mississauga crossbow suspect

The attempted hit took place on November 7 in Mississauga when emergency services responded to an incident to find a 44-year-old woman suffering from life-threatening injuries, according to the Peel Regional Police.

Peel Regional Police released surveillance video today of the November 7 attack as they appealed for help finding the attacker.

A crossbow like this one was used by a suspect hitman posing as a delivery man in Canada.

Officers said they believe the incident was a "premeditated, targeted and isolated attack" based on the conversation between the woman and suspect before she was shot. Comments made to the victim at her door also indicate the attack was targeted, Division Superintendent Heather Ramore said during a news conference Monday.

Investigators have since identified a dark-coloured pickup truck as a possible suspect vehicle. He rang the doorbell, chatted with the woman for a few moments and fired an arrow into her chest, leaving her with life-threatening injuries.

She spent several months in hospital and will be in a "recovery phase for the rest of her life". "The injuries she sustained were absolutely devastating - it involved damage to a lot of her internal organs".

"Her life will never be the same".

Detective Sgt. Jim Kettles answers questions at a press conference on April 15, 2019. "This is something we are attempting to establish". Kettles said the shoes and baseball hat worn by the suspect were unique - and the suspect did not hide his face, giving investigators a number of potential clues.

"The suspect may have attended with another individual", he said. "I can't speak to those at this point in time". Police said it's possible the suspect was wearing some sort of head covering underneath the baseball hat, such as a wig.

"His face does not appear to be covered", Kettles said.

"Anybody over the age of 18 can purchase one of these weapons at any sporting-goods store that happen to carry them", Det. Officials said the woman he attacked - described as a 44-year-old from Mississauga, Ontario - was still dealing with physical and emotional trauma.

"If you feel you can identify the person in this video or if you have any other information that may assist in this investigation, please call Peel Regional Police", Ramore said.
