Quinn MacDougall called police for help. They shot him. His family wants answers and reforms

The last time Keith MacDougall spoke to his 19-year-old son Quinn MacDougall, he told him to call the Hamilton police over a threat he received on Snapchat.

But Keith never expected what was to happen to his son after that phone call to police.

Quinn was fatally shot by police officers in April 2018, after police responded to his 911 calls for help.

The Special Investigations Unit (SIU), Ontario's police watchdog, completed its investigation last year and cleared the officers involved of any wrongdoing. The two police officers who shot Quinn when he was distraught did so within the bounds of the law as he charged at the officers with a knife, the director of the SIU at the time said in the report.
