News Release

June 11, 2020 Update: Fatal Police-involved Shooting in Brampton

Case Number: 20-OFD-075

Mississauga, ON (11 June, 2020) ---
The province’s Special Investigations Unit is continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding the fatal police-involved shooting of 26-year-old D’Andre Campbell in Brampton on April 6, 2020. 

The four Peel Regional Police officers who were designated as witness officers have been interviewed. In addition, SIU investigators have interviewed family members – four in all. The subject officer was invited for an interview, but he has not yet submitted to the interview nor has he provided his notes. Pursuant to Ontario Regulation 267/10 of the Police Services Act, subject officers cannot be legally compelled to present themselves for an interview with the SIU and they do not have to submit their notes to the SIU.

From the scene, SIU investigators recovered a knife, two conducted energy weapons and firearm-related evidence. The SIU also took possession of the subject officer’s firearm. Many of these items of evidence were submitted to the Centre of Forensic Sciences for analysis. A post-mortem was conducted, and the SIU is awaiting the report.

The SIU appreciates the public interest in this case and is doing what it can to get answers to the public as quickly as possible while ensuring that the integrity of the investigation is not compromised.  

The SIU is an independent civilian 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.
