Ontario police fired bullet that killed 1-year-old boy during standoff near Lindsay: SIU
Ontario police fired a bullet that struck and killed a one-year-old boy during a standoff near Lindsay last year, the province’s police watchdog has confirmed. On the morning of Nov. 26, 2020, Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) were called to the municipality of Trent Lakes for a domestic dispute involving a firearm. At the time, officers said they were made aware that a 33-year-old man had allegedly abducted his infant son. A vehicle of interest was located on Sturgeon Road and officers attempted to stop it. The pick-up truck later became involved in a crash with an OPP cruiser and a civilian vehicle on Pigeon Lake Road. As a confrontation occurred between three officers and the man, gunfire erupted. The baby was pronounced dead at the scene after being found inside the truck suffering from a gunshot wound.
