Ontario’s police watchdog is investigating after a 30-year-old man was shot and injured by Niagara police early on Christmas morning.

Niagara Regional Police Service says Grimsby, Ont., officers were notified by Hamilton police early Friday that a man suspected in an alleged assault was in the area.

The Special Investigations Unit says officers found the suspect’s vehicle in St. Catharines, Ont., at 2:46 a.m. and they used a spike belt to stop the vehicle.

The driver left the vehicle and Niagara police says two officers shot him during an interaction.

The SIU says he was taken to a hospital to be treated for “serious injuries” from gunshot wounds.

SIU investigators have taken possession of two police-issued firearms and a knife that was found at the scene.
