The province’s Special Investigations Unit says police played no role in the death of a man in Killaloe exactly one year ago. The SIU says there are no reasonable grounds to lay criminal charges against an OPP officer in relation to the man’s suicide. Police were called to a Killaloe home last December 6th after getting a call from the wife of a 52 year old victim. When officers arrived at the home, they found the man sitting inside some brush while holding a shotgun. The agency says that while officers tried to speak with him, the man raised his shotgun. When an officer discharged his stun gun (conducted energy weapon) at the man to incapacitate him, the man simultaneously shot himself. The SIU is an arm’s length agency that is called in to investigate any time someone is killed or seriously injured in an incident involving police.
