SIU Appealing for Potential Shooting Victim in Mississauga to Come Forward

Case Number: 19-OFI-114

Mississauga, ON (12 June, 2019) ---
At approximately 3 p.m. on May 25, 2019, Peel Regional Police officers were dispatched to Marmac Road in Mississauga after determining that a vehicle that had been reported stolen was in that area. While police were investigating, a man entered the vehicle and began to operate it.  Shortly thereafter, an officer discharged his firearm multiple times resulting in the vehicle’s windshield being struck. The vehicle fled until it became involved in a collision on Pettigrew Crescent. The man exited the vehicle and fled the scene on foot.

The man may or may not have been injured as the result of the shooting. The SIU is urging the man to contact the lead investigator at 1-800-787-8529.

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.
