SIU clears Peel police officer who shot and killed Jamal Francique in Mississauga last year

The province's police watchdog has cleared a Peel police officer who shot and killed 28-year-old Jamal Francique in Mississauga last January.

In a report released today, almost one year after the fatal shooting, Joseph Martino, the director of the Special Investigations Unit (SIU), said he found no reasonable grounds to criminally charge the officer who shot Francique on the night of Jan. 7, 2020.

According to the SIU report, members of the Peel Regional Police Service's vice narcotics street level organized crime unit had gathered on the afternoon of the day of the shooting to discuss "ongoing surveillance" of Francique.
