BT Toronto | posted Wednesday, Jan 8th, 2020

A 28-year-old man was seriously injured in an altercation with police officers in the Erin Mills area of Mississauga on Tuesday night.

Plain clothes officers from the street crime unit were investigating a vehicle for drug activity in a townhouse complex in the area of Winston Churchill Boulevard and Eglinton Avenue West around 7:45 p.m.

Const. Sarah Patten said when officers approached the vehicle, it drove towards the officers and one of them fired several shots at the vehicle.

The vehicle then swerved into a garage of one of the townhouses.

No other injuries were reported.

The Special Investigations Unit has invoked its mandate and is taking over the investigation.

The SIU is an arm’s length agency that investigates reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault.
