Ontario’s police watchdog is investigating the death of a 34-year-old Toronto man.
The Special Investigations Unit says Toronto police went to a downtown-area home around 11:30 p.m. on Saturday to respond to a call about a man armed with a gun.
A news release says the man barricaded himself inside the Church Street home after the police arrived.
The agency says police entered the house and found him in medical distress.
Paramedics were called and the man died a short time later.
Police say a postmortem is scheduled for Monday.
