OPP officer and civilian dead after shooting on Manitoulin Island

Ontario’s police watchdog says a provincial police officer and a civilian died in a shooting that took place on Manitoulin Island on Thursday.

The Special Investigations Unit says police were sent to investigate an unwanted man on a property in Gore Bay, Ont.

It says that when they arrived, an officer was shot and killed.

He’s been identified as Const. Marc Hovingh, who had been a member of the service for 28 years.

Police say that the man on the property was also shot, and died after being taken to hospital.

Initial reports suggested a second officer was also shot, but officials now say that’s not the case.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published Nov. 19, 2020.
