Man shot and killed during interaction with OPP in Collingwood, SIU says

A man was fatally shot during an interaction with the OPP in Collingwood, according to Ontario’s police watchdog.

The Special Investigations Unit said it was investigating Wednesday’s shooting. Shortly after noon, Ontario Provincial Police were called as a man was reported to be barricaded. Officers were setting up a perimeter when the man exited the residence while in possession of a firearm, according to the SIU’s news release Wednesday evening, citing preliminary information.

“There was an interaction between officers and the man, with one officer deploying his conducted energy weapon. When this proved to be ineffective, the same officer discharged his firearm at the man,” the release said.

The 29-year-old was shot and later pronounced dead at the hospital. The SIU said one subject officer and 10 witness officers have been designated.

It’s appealing to the public for information, at 1-800-787-8529.

The SIU investigates all incidents involving police in which someone is killed, injured or accused of sexual assault.

Postby Thomas » Mon Sep 14, 2020 4:14 pm

COLLINGWOOD, Ont. — Ontario's police watchdog is investigating after a provincial police officer fatally shot a man in Collingwood, Ont.

The Special Investigations Unit says Ontario Provincial Police officers responded Wednesday to a report of a man barricaded in a home armed with a gun.

It says as officers were setting up a perimeter, the man came out with a firearm and a police officer zapped him with a Taser.

Investigators say when that didn't stop the man the same officer shot him.

The 29-year-old man who investigators have not identified was pronounced dead in hospital.

The unit is an independent civilian agency that investigates reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published Sept. 9, 2020.

SIU investigating after OPP fatally shoot man, 29, in Collingwood, Ont.

The province's police watchdog is investigating after a man was shot and killed by Ontario Provincial Police in Collingwood on Wednesday.

In a news release, the Special Investigations Unit said the incident began when the OPP was called shortly after 12:30 p.m.to a residence on Third Street for a report of a man who had barricaded himself inside.

The SIU said the 29-year-old man left the residence with a firearm as officers were "setting up the perimeter" around the home.

"There was an interaction between officers and the man, with one officer deploying his conducted energy weapon. When this proved to be ineffective, the same officer discharged his firearm at the man," the SIU said.

"The man was struck. He was transported to hospital where he was pronounced deceased."

A post-mortem is scheduled for Thursday morning in Toronto.

The SIU said it has assigned six investigators and two forensic investigators to the case.

The case involves one subject officer and there are 10 witness officers.

Earlier in a video statement on Twitter, OPP Sgt. Jason Folz says an intersection in the town was closed off while police investigated a "critical incident."

Folz says there was no threat to public safety as of 3:45 p.m.

The SIU investigates all incidents involving police in which someone is killed or injured, or officers are accused of sexual assault.
