The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) is asking a man who might have been injured in a police-involved shooting in Mississauga to come forward.
The SIU says that at approximately 3 p.m. on May 25, 2019, Peel Regional Police officers were dispatched to Marmac Road in Mississauga to investigate reports that a stolen vehicle was in that area.
The SIU says a man entered the vehicle and began to operate it.
Shortly thereafter, an officer discharged his firearm multiple times, striking the windshield. The SIU says the driver fled and became involved in a collision on Pettigrew Crescent.
The SIU says the man exited the vehicle and fled the scene on foot.
The man may or may not have been injured as the result of the shooting.
The SIU is urging the man to contact the lead investigator at 1-800-787-8529.
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.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
