Case Number: 07-OFI-241

TORONTO (24 November, 2007) --- Seven investigators and four forensic identification technicians from the Special Investigations Unit (SIU) are probing the circumstances of a shooting that occurred involving the Peel Regional Police (PRP).

The SIU was notified that at about 4:55 p.m. this evening, four PRP officers responded to a domestic dispute call at a home on Delmonte Crescent in Malton. The officers found the man they were looking for outside a convenience store at 4369 Brandon Gate Drive. The officers were involved in a confrontation with the man inside the store and shots were fired by the police. The man was struck in the chest and is being treated at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. He is in critical condition.

There is no further information available at this time.

SIU forensic technicians are examining the scene and investigators have started interviewing six witnesses. Anyone else who has any further information about this incident is asked to contact the Unit at 416-622-1935 or 1-800-787-8529 ext 1935.

The SIU is an arm’s length agency that investigates reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault. Under the Police Services Act, the Director of the SIU must

  • consider whether an officer has committed a criminal offence  in connection with the incident under investigation
  • depending on the evidence, lay a criminal charge against the officer if appropriate or close the file without any charges being laid
  • report the results of any investigations to the Attorney General.
