A man has died after he was rushed to hospital with life threatening injuries after a mysterious incident on Yonge Street.
It happened around 9:15 p.m. near Yonge and Maitland and police closed Yonge from Maitland to Wellesley for the investigation. It reopened just before 6 a.m.
Police aren’t saying how the man was hurt, only that they responded to a call for a man with serious injuries on the street.
Around 1:30 a.m. Toronto Police tweeted that the SIU has now been called in to investigate.
On it’s website the S.I.U. says it is probing the circumstances surrounding a custody death.
The special investigation unit is called when police officers are involved in incidents where someone has been seriously injured or dies.
The SIU has the statutory mandate to conduct independent investigations to determine whether a criminal offence took place.
@TPSOperations The SIU has now been called for this and any further updates will come from them.^GL
