One man is dead, three officers injured following shooting

When police officers are involved in incidents where someone has been seriously injured, dies or alleges sexual assault, the Special Investigations Unit has the statutory mandate to conduct independent investigations to determine whether a criminal offence took place.

One man is dead, three officers injured following shooting in Tecumseh

The Special Investigations says three officers were injured in a confrontation in a Tecumseh home that left one man dead.

The SIU - which is probing the details of what happened - say OPP were called to a Tecumseh residence about a man in distress Friday around 10:15 p.m.

It says once in the home there was an interaction between the man and police and one of the officers discharged his firearm.

The man and three officers were transported to hospital where the 48-year-old man was pronouced deceased.

All of the officers have now been released from hospital.

OPP were holding the scene outside of 605 Estate Park in the town following the incident. The SIU was also on scene but cleared the area early Saturday afternoon.

Crime scene tape was put up around the home and what looks like a blood stain could be seen on the front driveway, as well as scattered garbage.

Neighbours tell CTV News they could clearly hear a single shot of a firearm and then sirens.

"It's shocking for a neighbourhood like this," says Bob Turner. "I mean, never thought anything would happen in the neighbourhood. But I guess crime happens all over the place."

Five investigators have been assigned to the investigation, including two forensic unit members.

OPP say they will not be commenting further as the SUI is involved.

Anyone with information is asked to call 1-800-787-8529. ... -1.4468039 ... -shooting/
