Post-Mortem Exam Scheduled for February 5, 2018, for 21-Year-Old Killed by Timmins Police

Few details have been released publicly after a 21-year-old man was shot and killed by police in Timmins, Ontario, sometime around the early morning of February 3, 2018. It has been announced that a post-mortem examination on the victim’s body was scheduled for February 5. The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) has only said that officers of the Timmins Police Service were deployed to an emergency medical services building to “deal with a man” in some unspecified way for some unspecified reason. They say that at some point their was an “interaction” (again unspecified) in which an officer fired a gun, striking and killing the man.  The SIU reports that it has assigned three investigators and three forensic investigators to the case. It has identified one “subject officer” and seven “witness officers.” Results of the post-mortem have not been released at this point.
