The provincial police watchdog is investigating after a Hamilton officer was involved in the shooting of a man in Mount Hope tonight (Feb. 23).

The Hamilton Police Service said it could only “confirm an officer involved-shooting on Strathearne Place” in the south Hamilton community. The shooting is believed to have happened around 5:30 p.m. on a residential street that ends in a cul-de-sac.

The Ontario Special Investigations Unit (SIU), which looks into cases when someone is injured or killed during an encounter with police, invoked its mandate soon thereafter.
