MISSISSAUGA, – Ontario’s police watchdog has been called in to investigate a shooting incident in Mississauga.
The Special Investigations Unit says Peel Regional Police officers responded to a call (at Golden Orchard Drive and Grand Forks Road) just after 1 a.m. today.
The SIU says there was an interaction between the officers and a 26-year-old man, and the man was shot. Peel police confirmed on Twitter that the man was shot by police.
Investigators say he was taken to St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto for treatment of injuries they say are not life-threatening.
Three investigators and two forensic investigators have been assigned to the case.
The SIU is automatically called in whenever someone is seriously hurt or killed in incidents involving police.
