SIU – Kingston Police

Ontario’s police watchdog has clear Kingston Police of any wrongdoing in the death of a 52 year old man last April.  The man was involved in a standoff with police after he confronted his ex-girlfriend in the University district and fired two rounds from a shotgun…narrowly missing the woman.

The Special Investigation Unit says it is clear the man took his own life without any intervention by the police following a lengthy standoff at a townhome on Compton Street.
