A 25-year-old man who was fatally shot in Malton in what is believed to be an isolated incident was a resident of Toronto, Peel Regional Police say.
Police identified the victim Monday as Dennis Alexander, who was gunned down at a home on Brandon Gate Drive, near Goreway Drive and Morning Star Drive, early Sunday morning.
Officers were called to a townhouse complex after shots rang out shortly after 2 a.m.

Police said Alexander was in attendance at a large gathering at the complex when he was shot.
Neighbours told CP24 there was a loud party in one of the townhouses.
