Man shot by Hamilton police has died in hospital: SIU

Ontario’s police watchdog says a man seriously injured in an officer-involved shooting in Hamilton on Tuesday is dead.

According to a statement issued by the Special Investigations Unit (SIU), the 42-year-old man “succumbed” to his injuries in hospital just after 3 p.m. on Wednesday.

The man was described as a “person of interest,” who was wanted in connection with the shooting in the parking lot of a convenience store near the intersection of Gage Avenue North and Cannon Street East.

Hamilton police said the man was sitting in a vehicle when officers approached him before the interaction.

The SIU says two officers discharged their firearms and are the focus of the investigation with four witness officers also being interviewed.
