LONDON, Ont. — Ontario’ s police watchdog is investigating after a 29 - year - old man died in police custody in London. The Special Investigations Unit says the man was arrested on an “outstanding charge” on Wednesday afternoon.

HALIFAX — Nova Scotia's police watchdog is investigating after a 29-year-old man fell to his death from a Halifax bridge following a "slow-speed pursuit" involving municipal officers.

The Serious Incident Response Team, or SIRT, confirmed Monday it's investigating the circumstances surrounding the early morning death.

The agency has the mandate to investigate incidents when police are involved in citizen deaths or serious injuries.

Const. John MacLeod, a spokesman for the Halifax Regional Police, says the incident began as a dangerous driving investigation, when officers tried to stop a vehicle in the Highfield Park area of Dartmouth.

Family of Peter de Groot still looking for explanation for deadly RCMP shooting, 5 years later

  Family of Peter de Groot still looking for explanation for deadly RCMP shooting, 5 years later The family of an alleged gunman shot and killed by RCMP after a manhunt in southeastern B.C. in 2014 says they still have a long list of questions about what happened.There's more than a dozen of them. Some are seemingly straightforward, like wanting to know whether or not Peter de Groot was shot in the back. Others are more complicated.

The fourth man in the ring, Brian Jay Nellis, 34, had been Rodreick' s cellmate in an Oklahoma prison after he was convicted of making indecent proposals to two six- year - old boys. "The school office folks did notice that he seemed older, but the age that everybody guessed was 16," Mr Igel said.

According to SiRT, Halifax Regional Police (HRP) responded to a disturbance call on the evening of Jan. 12 at an apartment building on Evans As police were entering the unit, the man apparently went over the railing of the balcony and fell to the ground. “ Police immediately called for an ambulance and

A chase ensued over the MacKay bridge, but the car looped back over the MacKay and headed through Dartmouth towards the Macdonald bridge, where the incident occurred around 2:30 a.m.

MacLeod says the man exited his vehicle on the Dartmouth side of the bridge and ran a short distance on foot before going over the side of the structure.

He couldn't comment on whether the man scaled barriers on the bridge that are designed to discourage people from attempting to jump off.

A spokeswoman for Halifax Harbour Bridges says the safety barriers were installed on the sidewalk and bike lane of the Macdonald bridge in 2009, and are 2.77 metres high.

MacLeod describes it as a "serious and very tragic" incident, and the dead man's next of kin are being notified.
