Police said officers shot a man after a woman was stabbed inside a home in the city’s east end Saturday afternoon.

Toronto police said just after 2:30 p.m. that they were called for a woman who had been stabbed at a home on Midland Avenue north of Kingston Road. A release Saturday night from the Special Investigations Unit said a 42-year-old man may have injured the woman.

“The man, believed to be involved in injuring the woman and who had a knife, took hold of a young child and entered a residence,” the SIU said, adding three officers shot the man.

Toronto paramedics said they took a woman and a man to a local trauma centre. Police said the child is not physically injured.

In an email later on Saturday, police spokesperson Stephanie Sayer said the man died from his injuries at the hospital.

“The woman who was stabbed has serious injuries but is in stable condition in hospital,” she wrote.

Three investigators and three forensic investigators are looking into the incident, according to the SIU.

Investigators ask anyone who may have information about the incident, including video or photos, to contact the them at 1-800-787-8529 or online at https://siu.on.ca/en/appeals.php.
