IIU investigating after man dies in police-involved incident

Manitoba’s Police watchdog is investigating after a man died in a police-involved incident.

The incident occurred while the Winnipeg Police Service was responding to a domestic dispute over the weekend.

Reports say WPS was trying to de-escalate the dispute involving the man, who was also holding a knife.

Sometime during the de-escalation attempt, the man reportedly stabbed himself, at which point WPS used a taser to subdue him and take him to the Health Sciences Centre, where he died.

The IIU was informed of the matter and have launched an investigation.

The IIU is also asking if anyone has any information on the incident in question, contact the IIU at 1-844-667-6060.
