The Special Investigations Unit is probing an incident near York University on Wednesday.

The case stems from an altercation that began when police pulled over a vehicle near Founders Road and Steeles Avenue at about 6:40 p.m.

Two people got out of the vehicle that was pulled over. Emergency Medical Services say there was a police foot chase and one man was rushed to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The SIU said in a release that 18-year-old Junior Alexander Manon died after the short foot pursuit.

An anonymous caller from Humber Regional Hospital told CP24 Wednesday night the victim was a healthy, 18-year-old man who may have had his neck broken.
