Greater Sudbury Police responded to a Weapons Complaint involving an individual downtown at the Greater Sudbury Transit Terminal.

On Sunday, April 1st around 6:30pm an officer arrived to find an aggressive man and “subsequently applied force that resulted in injuries requiring the man to be transported to hospital”, according to a press release from GSPS.

The man remains in hospital.

The SIU says “there was an interaction between officers and the man, and one officer discharged his firearm.”
