Please keep the families of these two officers and all of their colleagues in your thoughts and prayers.
Two police officers have died in a line-of-duty incident in Innisfil, the South Simcoe Police Service (SSPS) said Wednesday morning.
The incident occurred Tuesday night around 7:55 p.m. when the SSPS said officers responded to a “disturbance” in a 25th Sideroad and 9th Line home in Innisfil.
The two officers were shot in the home. A critically wounded officer was airlifted to a trauma centre. He later died.
The suspect is dead following an “interaction” with the police, police said.
At 10:50 p.m. on Tuesday night, South Simcoe police spokesperson Sue Sgambati said the Special Investigations Unit had invoked its mandate following a serious incident.
