0

On July 15, 2020, Leslie Hegedus passed away following an exchange of gunfire with two Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officers in Dysart, Ontario. The two officers – SO #1 and SO #2 – were identified as subject officers for purposes of the SIU investigation.

The Director of the SIU, Joseph Martino, has concluded there are no reasonable grounds to believe that either SO #1 or SO #2 acted other than lawfully throughout this incident. Accordingly, there is no basis for proceeding with criminal charges in this case, and the file is closed.
