The Special Investigations Unit says 60-year-old Gary Brohman was shot and killed during Thursday’s conflict, which also killed Const. Marc Hovingh.

The SIU previously said Hovingh and Brohman exchanged gunfire after police responded to a call regarding an “unwanted man” on a property in Gore Bay, Ont.

The agency said both Hovingh and Brohman died after being taken to hospital, while another officer who also responded to the call was uninjured in the incident.

The SIU says investigators are still at the scene on Manitoulin Island and have interviewed three civilian witnesses so far.
