SIU Finds No Grounds For Charges

The Special Investigations Unit has concluded its examination of a September 2017 shooting.

The arm's length agency says there are no reasonable grounds to lay criminal charges against any police officer related to the death of a 34-year-old man after a standoff in Windsor.

Amherstburg police say a 31-year-old man was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries after a shooting on Sandwich Street North in Amherstburg around 2:30 a.m. on Sept. 15, 2017.

The investigation determined that a man wanted in relation to the shooting was believed to be at a house at 1502 Betts Ave. in Windsor.

Members of both Amherstburg and Windsor Police Services attended the area and secured the target residence.

The SIU says at approximately 2pm, officers entered the residence and located the man in the garage — he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Three investigators and two forensic investigators were assigned to the case.

The SIU reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault.
