Charges not Warranted in Relation to Windsor Police-Involved Shooting

Numéro du dossier: 18-OFI-275

Mississauga, ON (25 octobre 2019) ---
In the evening of September 16, 2018, Windsor Police Service officers attended a residence on Bonita Street after a woman called 911 reporting that her husband had gone outside with a gun. As officers approached the residence, they saw the man seated on the wooden deck in front of the home with a bat in his possession and a gun beside him. When the man pointed the gun at one of the officers, two officers discharged their firearms and the man was struck. The officers provided first aid until paramedics arrived. The Interim Director of the Special Investigations Unit, Joseph Martino, has determined there are no reasonable grounds to lay criminal charges against any of the officers in this case.
