TORONTO (25 November, 2007) --- The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) is continuing to examine the circumstances of a shooting that occurred on November 24, 2007, involving the Peel Regional Police (PRP).

At approximately 4:55 p.m. yesterday evening, four PRP officers were involved in a confrontation with a 44-year-old man inside a convenience store at 4369 Brandon Gate Drive in Malton. The man was shot by two PRP officers and taken to hospital where he is currently in serious but stable condition.

SIU investigators have designated two subject officers and three witness officers from the PRP. They are continuing to appeal to anyone who has any information about this incident to contact the lead investigator at 416-622-1935 or 1-800-787-8529 ext 1935.
