Written by

York Regional Police (YRP) officers shot two men suspected of a string of Markham home invasions Friday morning, killing one.

Ontario’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) says the incident happened just after 7 a.m. on Eyer Drive, near Calvert Road.

According to the police, YRP officers have been investigating six home invasions that took place over two months in the area.

The accused must have stolen an unidentified amount of cash and a number of valuables during the robberies. No one was injured.

Friday, investigators say they have identified and located four male suspects in connection with the robberies.

Within that interaction, the SIU said police shot two of the suspects — one was pronounced dead at the scene and another was transported to the hospital in stable condition.

A man and a woman were arrested and remain in custody.

No further details have been released.
