SIU finds 'no reasonable grounds' to believe that officer committed criminal offence.
The director of Ontario's police watchdog has cleared an officer who fatally shot a man in Collingwood, Ont. in September 2020.
Joseph Martino, director of the Special Investigations Unit (SIU) wrote in a release on Tuesday that he "found no reasonable grounds to believe that an Ontario Provincial Police officer committed a criminal offence" in connection with the man's death.
The incident, which occurred on Sept. 9, 2020, began when officers were called to a residence on Third Street for reports that a man in distress was barricaded inside.
