When Peel Police arrived the Chandni Convention Centre June 19, they found two men shot.

One died at the scene and the other succumbed to wounds in hospital in early morning gunplay outside the Gateway Boulevard banquet hall in Brampton.

It was a double homicide stemming from a dispute over entering a Father’s Day event. Witnesses described a confrontation between two groups before gunfire erupted with people fleeing as bullets rang out.

Kenroy Benjamin, 28 of Bolton, was pronounced deceased at the scene. The second victim, 40-year-old Sheldon Taylor of Whitby, died later in hospital.

Police had very little to go on. With so many people at the event, there was confusion and chaos. But they went to work. They interviewed banquet hall staff, witnesses and went through security video.

Then came some leads. Now, six weeks later, Peel Police have two men in custody charged in one of the murders while they are still investigating the second one.

They have charged Ezekel Vincent, 36, of East Gwillimbury, with second-degree murder in Benjamin’s slaying. They also charged Robert Dallas, 36, of North York, with accessory after the fact to murder. Both appeared in court Thursday.

But this investigation is far from over. Peel homicide detectives are still at work trying to hold someone responsible for Taylor’s slaying. It’s also a very sad one since Taylor had five kids who no longer have a father. If someone knows who is responsible for his murder, police would like help.

The “investigation into the death of Sheldon Taylor continues,” said Peel Police. “Anyone with information on this incident, surveillance or dash cam footage, that may have captured the moments leading up to, during, or after the incident is asked to contact investigators at 905-453-2121 extension 3205. Anonymous information may also be submitted by calling Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), by visiting peelcrimestoppers.ca .”

This case is still live. There is still work to do.
