The Special Investigations Unit has said Ontario Provincial Police officers shot at a 33-year-old father in Kawartha Lakes in his pickup truck after he allegedly abducted his child on Nov. 26, 2020 in the neighbouring Municipality of Trent Lakes.
The agency has said evidence suggests police gunfire killed both the father and his child.
The child died that day while the father succumbed to gunshot wounds in hospital about a week later, the SIU has previously stated. An officer was also hurt in the confrontation.
The SIU says it is reviewing results of the ballistic testing from the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The SIU had seized three police-issued guns and a fourth firearm found in the pickup truck.
The agency says it is not releasing details of the results as its investigation remains active. The identities of the boy and his father have not been released.
The SIU says it is moving as quickly as possible to finish its investigation.
