In a release, the SIU said the 42-year-old man died Wednesday afternoon in hospital.

At around 4 p.m., officers found a 42-year-old man in a vehicle in a convenience store parking lot.

“As several officers approached the vehicle, there was an interaction and two officers discharged their firearms. The man was struck,” the SIU said on its website. “He was transported to the hospital where he remains in critical condition.”

The SIU says it continues to investigate the incident and has interviewed four officers identified as witnesses.

The SIU is automatically called in to investigate any incidents involving police where there are serious injuries, deaths or allegations of sexual assault.
