Police watchdog looks for witnesses after police shoot at vehicle in Oshawa, Ont.


Ontario’s police watchdog is looking for witnesses after a Durham Region officer fired his gun at a vehicle.

The Special Investigations Unit says officers in Oshawa, Ont., responded to a report of theft and a suspicious person on April 16.

They spotted a vehicle of interest in a Shoppers Drug Mart parking lot — at Harmony and Taunton roads.

The agency says an officer fired at the vehicle multiple times.

The vehicle took off and the 45-year-old female driver was later arrested unhurt in Mississauga, Ont.

Investigators have talked to three civilian witnesses but say others saw what happened.
