The province’s police watchdog is investigating after a male was injured in a shooting in North York Tuesday evening following an altercation with police.
York Regional Police say they were called to the area of Islington Avenue and Steeles Avenue around 8:20 p.m. after shots were fired during an “interaction” between officers and occupants of a vehicle.
A male in the vehicle was taken to hospital. He remains in serious condition, the SIU says.
An officer was also taken to hospital as a precaution. Police would not confirm if the officer was shot, but say one person has been taken into custody.
The SIU says five investigators and three forensic investigators have been assigned to this incident. The agency says one subject officer and five witness officers have been designated.
