SIU clears Hamilton police officers in 2018 fatal shooting of 19-year-old

Ontario’s police watchdog, the Special Investigations Unit (SIU), has concluded its investigation into a 2018 fatal police shooting of 19-year-old Quinn MacDougall in Hamilton’s north end.

Investigators say the incident involved Hamilton police responding to several 911 calls made about a “man with a gun.”

When multiple police officers responded to the scene, the man — identified by Global News as MacDougall — was stun-gunned and then shot dead by police after he allegedly “lunged” at an officer.

SIU ended the case after the agency determined the shots fired by the officers were justified.
