An Ottawa-area man who was fatally shot in a confrontation with police near here Friday had both hands on his steering wheel when he died, according to a witness who said she watched the incident from her apartment window.
Julie Young said she saw a police officer fire two shots at the driver’s side of the pickup truck, adding the truck was “boxed in” by Ontario Provincial Police vehicles at the time.
“The vehicle was not moving,” said Young.
