Police block off Sherbrook Street after 2nd officer-involved shooting in 48 hours
Police confirmed Saturday they shut down a stretch of Sherbrook Street between Ellice Avenue and Sargent Avenue Friday evening due to an officer-involved shooting.
Two cruisers were parked in front of an apartment building Friday night.
Witnesses reported a large police presence in the area beginning around 8 p.m.
Police are holding a press conference at 11 a.m. Saturday and will provide more details then.
It’s the second police-involved shooting this week – on Wednesday, police shot at a vehicle on Nairn Avenue when they tried to contain the vehicle and it rammed through their blockade.
A witness told Global News he was angry with police over the shooting, as he and his daughter were in a vehicle in the line of fire during that incident.
