Rumors and emotions are very high when one policeman repeatedly attacked at a rural junction in Pelham, Ont., According to the mayor of the city.
"There are many questions, but there are many questions for these issues," said Dave Augustyn. "I only hope that they will reach the bottom of this and find this and provide treatment, this will have the effects of a wave".
The predominantly rural Pelham is southwest of St. Catherine.
On Friday, the Single Special Investigative Unit (SIU) in Ontario published more details, including the fact that only one police officer fired weapons and shot several times.
The shooter and the victim were among the police officers in the Roland Road and Effingham Street, who investigated the collision that occurred a few days earlier.
"One policeman repeatedly dropped his firearms and another official was destroyed," the SIU journal said. "An officer who was shot, he was taken to a hospital where he is in a stable condition."
What would lead to individuals who should serve and protect themselves in order to get themselves involved.– Dave Augustyn, mayor of Pelham
The publication did not show how many times the victim was affected.
SIU says it will not disclose the identity of officials according to its policy while the investigation is taking place. But the police in Niagara says the victim has 28 years of experience and is assigned a uniform patrol in Welland and Pelham.
According to what happened, there were 12 officers of witnesses, including a man who was shot.
It will not disclose the identities of these officials according to their policy while the investigation is ongoing. He also did not disclose what led to the recording or any special features of the relationship between the two men.
"Understanding what has happened and the relationship between police officers is part of the SIU investigation," said spokeswoman Monica Hudon.
The Union, which supports both officials
Augustyn said that there was a lot of rumors about what happened.
"Our community is the one where these kinds of things do not happen so often," he said. "The community is really just wondering what happened, and what would lead to individuals who should serve and protect themselves to turn themselves."
In the meantime, the Niagara Regional Police Association has heard police services across the country, said President Cliff Priest. His association supports officials and their families.
"When they hear of traumatic incidents involving police officers, they have a traumatic effect," he said. "This is our family. When one family fights, we are all affected."
This support, he said, includes consulting, transportation or just listening.
Niagara Provincial Police Chief Bryan MacCulloch said the province asked the police in Ontario to determine whether there was criminal offense outside the SIU, but said that they were not arrested for shooting.
"The days and weeks that we will have before our arrival will try to take care of the NRPS family and the community we serve," he said. "I ask for your support for our members and everyone involved."
Kevin Bryan, retired police detective York and a Seneca college instructor, say that conflicts between officers are not unusual, he has never seen an incident like this week.
To shoot one police officer while he is at work and in the middle light, he is simply shocking, he said.
"To come to this, wow"
"I saw infidelity in the workplace between officers and official spouses where there is one officer with something else," said Bryan.
Some will choose pages and similar things.– Kevin Bryan, a police instructor
"I know about incidents when somebody hit the face and the like, over unfaithfulness or perceived infidelity. But I've never seen where the footage came from – and also at work.
"I saw that the officer grabbed another officer with his shirt and pushed them to the locker, where one officer did not like the other, but to come to this, wow."
And just as shooting affects the community, it will also be brilliant with the help of the service.
"Some will choose pages and similar things," said Bryan
"There will be guys who might think that a boy is responsible for shooting, and there will be boys who would hate [shooter]. "
Bryan said that without a doubt the NRPS senior ups are dealing with today's situation to determine whether people are aware of any horrors between the two police officers.
Bryan said that while the situation is very unusual, the police unions have dealt with situations in which they support officials in conflict.
"It can happen. It's uncomfortable, but you just get it with your own lawyers."
Michael Kempa, head of the Criminology Department at the University of Ottawa, told CBC News that in such a case, an official will not be charged until the investigation is completed, which is contrary to how he would generally be a member of the public.
"I think that the public would be surprised to know that they would not initially be charged with the accusation for an ordinary police officer, since they would first have assumed that the resolution of the firearms is reasonable, and then we will investigate and if we find out something wrong, we will then be charged. … for a public member, that's the other way around, "said Kempa.
But for civilians, he said: "We say, OK, firearms were fired, probably unreasonable, we will levy a charge and then we will see if we have enough to ensure the conviction."
