SIU Determines Police-Involved Shooting of Man in Toronto School Yard was Justified; Criminal Charges not Warranted

Numéro du dossier: 17-TFI-355

Mississauga, ON (10 janvier 2019) ---
On the night of December 1, 2017, a man called 911 to report that four men with firearms were trying to break into his house, and that they had then fled. Toronto Police Service officers attended the area and saw four men running towards a school.  There was an interaction between officers and one of the men, and an officer discharged his firearm. The Director of the Special Investigations Unit, Tony Loparco, has determined there are no reasonable grounds to lay criminal charges against the officer in relation to the gunshot wound sustained by the 25-year-old man.
