WELLAND, Ont. — Two police officers shot in Ontario's Niagara region on Saturday evening have been released from hospital and are expected to make a full recovery.
Niagara Regional Police identified the officers as Const. Neal Ridley and Const. Jake Braun, who both work out of the force's Welland detachment.
Police said the shooting occurred while police responded to a report of an attempted suicide in the village of Fenwick, which is northwest of Welland.
A police news release says when the officers arrived at an apartment complex, a man left his room and fired shots at them.
One of the officers underwent surgery and has since been released from hospital, the other was treated for a gunshot wound to his foot and was also released.
A civilian man was also wounded at the scene, but there was no word on his condition.
Police aren't providing further details because Ontario's police watchdog was been called in to review how the incident was handled.
The Special Investigations Unit is automatically called in whenever police are involved in a situation that results in death or serious injury.
"I am incredibly proud of the courage and professionalism of these officers," said Niagara police chief Jeffrey McGuire in the news release issued Sunday.
Police say both officers are recovering at home.
