SIU Investigation In Weagamow

Investigators from the SIU will be looking into an Good Friday incident  on the Weagamow Lake First Nation.  The OPP says officers from Sioux Lookout and the North Caribou Lake Police Service were called out shortly before 11:00 at night about a disturbance.  When they arrived at the scene, a male suspect was located outside the home, but he fled inside when approached by the officers.  Police say they heard sounds of children crying inside, so they went in to make sure  everyone was safe.  They instead found the suspect was suffering from a self-inflicted wound.  The Special Investigations Unit is called in anytime a member of the public is injured during an interaction with police.
