Six months after confirming baby was killed by OPP gunfire, SIU hasn’t interviewed officers and case is in ‘hold pattern’

Six months after the provincial police watchdog confirmed a baby boy and his father were fatally shot by the Ontario Provincial Police, the officers who opened fire have not been interviewed and the investigation is “in a hold pattern” awaiting results of ballistic testing by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

In a “rare” move in one of its highest-profile recent cases, Ontario’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) has tapped the FBI to perform forensic ballistics testing, a specialty of the U.S. agency, according to SIU spokesperson Kristy Denette.

The SIU’s update is the first since February, when the watchdog confirmed an 18-month-old baby was fatally shot by the OPP following an alleged child abduction on Nov. 26, 2020, in Kawartha Lakes.
