The provincial police watchdog is investigating after a police involved shooting in Tecumseh, Ont., that ended in the death of a 48-year-old man and injured multiple police officers.

According to the Special Investigations Unit, Ontario Provincial Police responded to a call about a man in distress on Friday night. Essex County OPP said the home was in the 600 block of Estate Park in Tecumseh.

He was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.
