Ontario’s Special Investigations Unit is probing the circumstances surrounding the death of a 45-year-old London man.

SIU officials say preliminary information indicates officers with the London Police Service responded to a residence on Culver Drive to deal with a male at about 5 p.m. on Wednesday. At some point, the man sustained a gunshot wound.

He was taken to Victoria Hospital, but later died from his injuries.

The SIU has assigned five investigators and three forensic investigators to probe the circumstances of this incident. A post-mortem examination was conducted in London Thursday morning.

Anyone who may have information about this incident is asked to contact the lead investigator at 416-622-2038 or 1-800-787-8529 extension 2038.
