Holes emerge in Jamal Francique police shooting probe

The province’s Special Investigations Unit has cleared a Peel Regional police officer of wrongdoing in the shooting death of Jamal Francique. But what Francique family lawyer Knia Singh describes as “glaring deficiencies” in the SIU’s report he says has raised more questions.

The 28-year-old Mississauga man died in hospital on January 9, 2020, two days after he was shot in the side of the head during an attempted arrest by six Peel police drug squad officers just outside the townhouse complex where he lived with his parents.

The SIU, which is charged with investigating police incidents involving serious injury or death, released its report into the shooting on January 20, more than a year after Francique’s death.
