he province's police watchdog is investigating after a man was shot and killed by Ontario Provincial Police in Collingwood on Wednesday.
In a news release, the Special Investigations Unit said the incident began when the OPP was called shortly after 12:30 p.m.to a residence on Third Street for a report of a man who had barricaded himself inside.
The SIU said the 29-year-old man left the residence with a firearm as officers were "setting up the perimeter" around the home.
"There was an interaction between officers and the man, with one officer deploying his conducted energy weapon. When this proved to be ineffective, the same officer discharged his firearm at the man," the SIU said.
