SIU Continues Investigation into Firearm Injuries in Toronto

Case Number: 10-OFI-266

Mississauga (14 December, 2010) --- Ontario’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) is continuing to probe the circumstances surrounding the firearm injuries sustained by two men in Toronto’s west end on Friday December 10, 2010. 

The SIU designated and interviewed six witness officers (three from York Regional Police and three from the Toronto Police Service). In addition two officers have been designated as subject officers.  SIU investigators are continuing to canvass Weston Road in an effort to identify civilian witnesses and obtain any other evidence relevant to the investigation, such as CCTV footage.

The passenger, a 40-year-old Brampton man remains in Sunnybrook Hospital in critical, stable condition.  The driver, a 33-year-old Brampton man has been treated and released.

Anyone who may have information regarding this case is asked to contact the Unit at 416-622-0748 or 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.
