GUELPH - The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) is investigating the death of a 43-year-old from Oxford County.
Officials say Guelph Police went to check on the wellbeing of a man in a pickup truck in the area of Victoria Street and York Road at around 9:30 a.m. on Saturday. The officers discovered that an arrest warrant had been issued for him, so the man fled in the truck and the officers pursued him.

The Special Investigations Unit is notified whenever there is an incident with police that results in death, serious injury, sexual assault, and/or discharge of a firearm.
