MISSISSAUGA, Ont. -- The Special Investigations Unit has been called in to investigate a police shooting in Oshawa early today.
The SIU says at about 1:20 a.m., a man Durham Region police were investigating entered a business in the King Street East and Charles Street area.
About an hour later, says the agency, the man drove a vehicle out of the business and he was shot following "an interaction with the police."
The man is being treated in hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
His name has not been released.
The SIU, which investigates incidents between police and civilians that have resulted in death or serious injuries, has assigned six investigators to the case.
