Face mask on road-eric1513

We've seen the viral videos from south of the border, of people causing scenes in stores after refusing to wear a face mask.

Yesterday, a refusal to put on a face mask turned deadly and now the SIU is investigating after police shot and killed a man in cottage country.

It happened in Haliburton where witnesses claim a man erupted in rage and started assaulting people when he was asked to mask up inside a grocery store.

He allegedly crashed his vehicle into the store before he sped away.

The SIU says police followed the car and made their way to a home where they had an interaction with a 73 year old man outside.

The agency says two officers shot at the man.

He was taken to hospital where he died.
