Ontario’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) says a man is dead and an officer has been injured after a police investigation in Scarborough Tuesday evening.
An SIU spokesperson told reporters that Toronto police officers were attempting to stop a vehicle near Midland Avenue and Midwest Road when the vehicle struck and injured a police officer.
The spokesperson said another police officer then fired their gun and a 21-year-old man was shot.
He was transported to hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The officers attempting to stop the vehicle were a part of the guns and gangs unit and were investigating the driver, the SIU said.
