A new video has surfaced showing the moment a tornado struck Uxbridge over the weekend, shredding the roof off a local brewery.
Several cameras mounted on a Tesla parked outside the Second Wedge Brewery on Victoria Street captured the clip.
As the EF2 tornado initially touched down in the neighborhood on Saturday afternoon, the sky gradually darkened.
The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) said two officers then shot at the man and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
“The man was struck, and the man was pronounced deceased at the scene. At this time, the SIU has not yet identified the man,” SIU spokesperson Kristy Denette said yesterday.
Witnesses outside described hearing three gunshots in quick succession, and officers attempting CPR on the man afterwards.
William G. Davis went into lockdown and children told CP24 they huddled under their desks during that time.
Police also told four other nearby public schools to go into either hold and secure or lockdown.
“Hold and secure is the outer doors of the school are locked, so no coming and going, but school life relatively remains the same inside the school. For a lockdown though that’s where the outer doors are locked and people are inside classrooms, lights are out, away from windows, underneath desks in some cases, remaining quiet,” Toronto District School Board (TDSB) spokesperson Ryan Bird told CP24 on Friday.
All school restrictions were lifted by 3 p.m.
The SIU confirmed Friday morning that a 27-year-old man had died and that he was carrying a pellet gun, not a BB gun as earlier reports suggested.
The president of the Toronto Police Association said two officers were taken to the hospital for a “checkup.”
It is unclear where the man was headed and what he was going to do with his weapon.
An SIU investigator was seen by Chopper 24 photographing the pellet gun, clad in wood furniture with a scope attached to the top of the barrel.
