Peel Regional Police say a man is in life-threatening condition after a shooting inside a Mississauga hotel early Saturday.

Police said officers received a call shortly after 2 a.m. for reports of a shooting in the area of Hurontario Street and Britannia Road.

A police spokesperson told Global News a 28-year-old man who had been shot at a hotel in the area was transported to a Toronto trauma centre in life-threatening condition.

As of late Saturday morning, police said he remains in critical condition in hospital.

While investigators said the shooting occurred inside the hotel, it is unclear if it happened in a room or in another part of the building.

On Saturday afternoon, police said it is believed the shooting occurred as a result of a robbery.

Police said no arrests have been made in connection with the incident but they are searching for a male suspect last seen leaving the area on foot.

He is described as being bald and six feet tall with a muscular build.
