The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) has cleared a Hamilton police officer who fatally shot a man last September.
Anthony Divers, 36, was shot and killed around midnight on September 30 near the Hamilton GO station. The officer was responding to an assault by a man who reportedly had a gun.
According to the SIU, there were no reasonable grounds to lay criminal charges.
A report released yesterday says Divers was not armed, but investigators found that the officer reasonably believed his life was in danger and firing upon Divers was justified.
