SIU clears Toronto police officer who fatally shot suspect in June 2019 takedown

The Special Investigations Unit has cleared a Toronto police officer in the fatal shooting of a suspect during a violent takedown in Scarborough last summer because his colleague’s “life hung in the balance.”

“I have no reason to doubt that the (subject officer) believed it was necessary in the moment to shoot the (suspect) to thwart the (suspect’s) attack and protect his teammate from an imminent risk of death or grievous bodily harm,” SIU director Joseph Martino concluded in his report dated March 9 and released Monday.
