SIU Investigates Weagamow Incident

The Ontario Special Investigations Unit has been called in to look into an
incident on the Weagamow First Nation over the weekend.

The North Caribou Lake Police Service and the OPP were called to a disturbance around 11:00 on Good Friday night.

When officers arrived at the scene, they witnessed a man outside a home, but he quickly fled inside when police approached.

The OPP say the cries of childen could be heard, so the officers entered the house to
make sure everyone was safe.

The suspect was located but police says he was suffering from a self-inflicted wound.

He was taken to hospital for treatment.

So far no charges have been laid, but the SIU is called in anytime a member of the public is injured during an interaction with police.
