Mississauga (25 May, 2015) --- Ontario’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) is continuing to probe the circumstances surrounding the shooting death of a man last week in Guelph.
The deceased is identified as 36-year-old Brandon Scott Duncan.
The SIU has assigned eight investigators and four forensic investigators to probe the circumstances of this incident.
Anyone who may have information regarding this case is asked to contact the lead investigator at 1-800-787-8529 ext. 2293.
