Ontario's police watchdog says it's investigating after a police-involved shooting in Hamilton left a 42-year-old man in critical condition.  

The Special Investigations Unit says the incident started Tuesday afternoon around 3:30 p.m. when officers responded to a domestic call and found a person of interest in a car in a convenience store parking lot.  

They say several officers approached the vehicle when an interaction occurred, which ended with two officers firing shots that struck the man. 

 Investigators say the man was rushed to hospital where he remains in critical condition.  

The SIU is an arm's length agency that investigates police interactions that end in death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault.
