Ontario’s police watchdog says it’s investigating after a man died following an interaction with Peel Regional Police involving a stun gun.

The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) said in a statement police were called to a home near Cambrett and Morning Star drives, near Goreway Drive, in Mississauga just after 9 p.m. on Tuesday for a domestic incident.

The SIU said officers had an interaction with a 34-year-old man that involved the use of a conducted energy weapon, more commonly known as a Taser.

The SIU is an independent agency that investigates incidents involving police that have resulted in death, serious injury or an alleged sexual assault.

The SIU is now investigating an incident involving Peel Regional Police in Mississauga.
