Ontario’s police watchdog says a man has died nearly a week after being shot by provincial police in an incident that also left his one-year-old son dead in Kawartha Lakes, Ont.

The Special Investigations Unit says the 33-year-old man died in hospital on Wednesday night.

The agency has said three police officers opened fire on the man after his pickup truck crashed into a cruiser, injuring an officer who was laying down a spike belt.

It says the man was injured and his baby was found dead of a gunshot wound in the back seat of his pickup truck.

Police had been investigating an alleged kidnapping at the time.

In addition to the three police-issued guns, the SIU says investigators found a fourth firearm at the scene.
