SIU: No Grounds For Criminal Charges Against Officer In Killaloe Man's Death In 2017

Ontario’s police watchdog says there are no grounds for criminal charges against a police officer over the death of a man in Killaloe one year ago. 

The OPP were called to a home in the village on December 6th, 2017, by the concerned wife of a 52 year old man. 

The Special Investigaitons Unit, which has been investigating the incident, found that when officers arrived, the man was sitting inside some brush holding a shotgun. 

The SIU says the man raised the gun when police attempted to speak with him... and as an officer used a taser to try to subdue the man, the man simultaneously shot himself. 

The agency now says there are no reasonsble grounds to lay criminal charges against the OPP officer in relation to the man’s death.

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.
