One man was sent to hospital with serious injuries following a shooting involving a London police officer.
Police responded to a report of a man in possession of knives in the 300-block of Dufferin Avenue around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Officers found the suspect in the area.
According to police, the man ran toward officers while holding knives in his hand.
“Attempts with less lethal force options were unsuccessful, and as a result, an officer discharged his firearm,” a statement from London police reads.
Police say the male suspect suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to Victoria Hospital.
On Friday, police said the suspect has been charged with three counts of assaulting a peace officer with a weapon and one count of possessing of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.
The Special Investigations Unit has invoked its mandate.
According to the SIU investigation, officers were responding to a domestic disturbance call at an apartment.
The SIU says two officers deployed their conducted energy weapon, and a third officer discharged their pistol.
The SIU is asking anyone who may have information about this investigation to contact the lead investigator at 1-800-787-8529.
