A 20-year-old man is facing four charges after an incident in Orleans earlier this month that ended when he was shot by an Ottawa police officer.
People called 911 on June 4 to report that a man was wielding a knife in the street near Innes and Tenth Line roads on June 4.
The man was taken to hospital in stable condition after being shot twice by a police officer after an "interaction," according to a news release from Ontario's Special Investigations Unit, which is investigating the shooting.
Lenny Sanguya is facing two counts of breaching conditions, one count of possessing a weapon dangerous to the public peace, and one count of mischief.
His next court appearance is scheduled for July 10.
Man shot in chest, arm
Police sources told CBC News the man was shot in the chest and arm by a male officer with five to seven years of experience.
No officers involved were injured.
"When I saw him walk along with a knife in his hands I thought, this is not normal," witness Michael Nituch told CBC at the time. "He started waving it around and pointing it at his own chest."
Other witnesses said they saw the man smash a vehicle's windshield at a nearby parking lot before running down the road.
The SIU investigates cases of serious injury, death, or sexual assault where police are involved.
Following protocol, the officer involved has been taken off the road and his gun seized for testing.
