After being closed off for nearly 24 hours due to a police shooting of a man who was allegedly carrying a weapon, St. Patrick Street has again reopened. According to a tweet from Ottawa police on Sunday, police were summoned to a knife-wielding person near Sussex Drive and St. Patrick Street at about 2:00 p.m. Two policemen fired their weapons, according to the Special Investigations Unit (SIU), Ontario’s police watchdog, and the guy was shot.
The authorities pronounced him dead there. As SIU investigators inspected the evidence along St. Patrick on Monday morning, police tape and cruisers remained in place. According to Jean-Claude Bergeron, the shooting took place in front of his gallery at 150 Saint Patrick Street. When he said he couldn’t see a knife, emergency personnel started performing CPR.
After the event, Bergeron claimed he made the decision to close his gallery for the remainder of the day. Four officers spotted the man on St. Patrick Street, according to Ottawa police chief Eric Stubbs, who spoke at the Ottawa Police Services Board meeting on Monday. During the subsequent interaction, two of the cops reportedly discharged their firearms, according to the SIU. According to Stubbs, police are able to resolve almost all of these situations without resorting to lethal force.
He added that he hopes the public would see how “challenging and dynamic” these circumstances may be. At an earlier news conference on Monday, Stubbs stated that the police department is collaborating to make the neighborhood safer with the city administration, neighborhood non-governmental organizations, and Rideau-Vanier Councillor Stéphanie Plante.
However, Plante claimed that she is growing more worried about safety in her area. According to the SIU, the inquiry is being conducted by three investigators, two forensic investigators, two subject officials, and two witness officials. The unit looks into incidents involving significant injuries, fatalities, allegations of sexual assault involving police, as well as incidents involving the use of force by police. As the SIU conducts its investigation, Ottawa police would not comment further on the tragedy.
Michael Quattrocchi’s obituary and funeral arrangements will be released by the family at a later date.
