Ontario’s police watchdog investigating man’s death in Toronto

Ontario’s police watchdog is investigating the death of a 30-year-old man in Toronto on Monday.

The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) said around 7 a.m., Toronto police officers were called to an apartment building on Bellamy Road in Scarborough.

Preliminary information suggests that officers arrived and noticed that a man had barricaded himself in a unit on the eighth floor, the SIU said, adding that the officers eventually make their way inside.

After speaking with the man, police apprehended him under the Mental Health Act and took him to hospital, according to the SIU.
