The province’s Special Investigations Unit has been called in following a fatal police shooting in Collingwood.

The Special Investigations Unit says Ontario Provincial Police officers responded Wednesday to a report of a man barricaded in a home armed with a gun.

It says as officers were setting up a perimeter, the man came out with a firearm and a police officer zapped him with a Taser.

Investigators say when that didn’t stop the man the same officer shot him.

The 29-year-old man who investigators have not identified was pronounced dead in hospital.
