SIU investigates after man shot and killed during police interaction in Bobcaygeon

Ontario’s police watchdog is investigating a shooting during a police interaction in Bobcaygeon Thursday morning that left a man dead.

The Special Investigations Unit said an officer from the Ontario Provincial Police Kawartha Lakes Department went to a home near Highway 49 and Highway 47 just after noon. 10 for a theft investigation.

When the officer arrived, they encountered a man with a firearm, SIU said.

“There was an interaction and the officer fired his firearm before retiring,” SIU said in a press release.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

SIU has appointed three investigators and two forensic investigators for the case and appointed a case officer and three witnesses.

The agency asks anyone with information to contact the lead investigator.

SIU is urged to investigate when police are involved in a death, serious injury, allegation of sexual assault or firing a firearm at a person.
