Police watchdog investigates shooting

British Columbia's police watchdog confirms that it has been called to investigate a shooting incident that left one man dead in Surrey.

The Independent Investigations Office says Surrey RCMP reported that its officers responded to a call to check on an adult male on Friday night.

The IIO says police went to the man's residence and during the course of events the man was shot by an officer.

The man was taken to the hospital but did not survive.

The IIO was notified at around 10:15 p.m. and sent investigators immediately.

The Independent Investigations Office is brought in to investigate deaths of serious injuries when police are involved.
