Ontario's Special Investigations Unit (SIU) has begun an investigation into the fatal shooting of a Nipigon man by an OPP officer.

OPP were called to a residence on Park Road in Nipigon, Ont. — located about 120 kilometres northeast of Thunder Bay — at about 7:30 pm on Saturday, Nov. 26.

Details of the call aren't yet known, but an SIU release states responding officers encountered a man at the residence, and there was an altercation.

One of the officers discharged a firearm and struck the man, who was then taken to Nipigon District Memorial Hospital. He was later pronounced dead.

The SIU is asking anyone with information about the incident to contact the lead investigator at 1-800-787-8529, ext. 2314.

The SIU is an arm's length agency that investigates reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault.

Postby Thomas » Sun Nov 27, 2016 3:56 pm

NIPIGON, Ont. – The province’s Special Investigations Unit has invoked its mandate and will look into a fatal shooting in Nipigon involving an Ontario Provincial Police officer.

In a release issued late on Saturday night, the SIU said OPP were called to a home on Park Road at about 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, where they encountered a man and there was an interaction. An officer discharged his firearm, striking the man.

The victim, whom a source says was in his mid-40s, was taken to Nipigon District Memorial Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

Four investigators and three forensic investigators have been assigned to look into the incident and the SIU urges anyone with information to contact the lead investigator at 1-800-787-8529 at extension 2314.

The SIU is called into investigate cases when there has been a death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault involving a police officer.

Police have not released any further details about the shooting or said why they used deadly force in the incident. The OPP was contacted for comment, but declined at this time, saying inquiries must go through the SIU.

Man shot in altercation at Nipigon residence

Ontario's Special Investigations Unit (SIU) has begun an investigation into the fatal shooting of a Nipigon man by an OPP officer.

OPP were called to a residence on Park Road in Nipigon, Ont. — located about 120 kilometres northeast of Thunder Bay — at about 7:30 pm on Saturday, Nov. 26.

An SIU release states responding officers encountered a man at the residence, and there was an interaction between him and responding officers.

One of the officers discharged his firearm and struck the man, who was then taken to Nipigon District Memorial Hospital. He was later pronounced dead.

SIU spokeswoman Monica Hudon was unable to provide many more details due to the ongoing nature of the investigation.

She did say the deceased male was 45 years old.

Hudon said SIU investigators started arriving in Nipigon overnight Saturday.

"Four investigators and three forensic investigators have been assigned to investigate this incident," she said. "At this time, they have designated one subject officer and eight witness officers."

Hudon said witness officers are individuals who have knowledge of the situation, but weren't necessarily at the scene when it happened.

The SIU is asking anyone with information about the incident to contact the lead investigator at 1-800-787-8529, ext. 2314.
