    MORRISBURG, Ontario | An officer of the Ontario provincial Police has been involved in an incident which proved fatal for a civilian, on Saturday morning, outside the police station in Morrisburg, about 80 km south of Ottawa.

    The dispute between the police officer and a white male allegedly took place in the parking lot of the police station and would have involved at least one firearm, according to what was reported in the local media.

    “I certainly heard shots,” said the local newspaper “The Morrisburg Leader” a witness who was at the service station located on the other side of the street.

    “When I looked, I saw two police officers, one with a firearm and the other, who stood up from the ground.”

    The witness stated that there was a third person involved in the incident, a civilian, who was lying inert on the ground near the north entrance of the police station. He then saw an agent make maneuvers of cardio-pulmonary resuscitation on the civil. The death of the latter was found on the premises.

    The officer involved in the shooting was treated for injuries for which the nature was not specified.

    The special investigations Unit of Ontario has been mandated to conduct an investigation.
