OTTAWA – The province’s police watchdog has been called in to investigate a police-involved shooting.

Around 6 p.m. Tuesday, police were working in the area of Bangs Street and Brittany Drive, near the Montfort Hospital, where there was an interaction between officers and two males.

Two officers fired their guns and both men were injured. Neighbours said they heard three to four gunshots, and a man’s voice yelling, “don’t move!”

The men have been treated for their injuries and are in police custody. No names or ages have been released.

The Special Investigations Unit has assigned four investigators and one forensic investigator to the case.

If you have any information, you’re asked to call the SIU at 1-800-787-8529, or if you have video evidence, you’re asked to upload it through the SIU website.
