SIU Investigating After Man Shot Dead in Mississauga


The province’s Special Investigations Unit is investigating after a man was fatally shot in Mississauga early Saturday.

Our investigators are working to notify next of kin,” said SIU spokesperson Jasbir Dhillon.

Peel police officers responded to a disturbance call - involving a weapon - at a home near Rathburn Rd. E. and Tomken Rd. on Dec. 30 at 12:30 a.m.

When officers arrived, the man - who’s from Mississauga - had already left.

Police found him on Torino Cres.

An “interaction” ensued and an officer fired his gun, striking the man.

He was taken to St. Mike’s hospital in Toronto — there were no vital signs.

The man was pronounced dead in hospital.

Six investigators and three forensic investigators have been assigned to this incident.

The SIU is asking anyone who may have information about the incident to contact the lead investigator at 1-800-787-8529.

Anyone who may have video evidence related to this incident is being asked to upload footage through the SIU website.

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.
