An Ontario Provincial Police officer died Thursday after being shot in the line of duty on Manitoulin Island in an incident that left a second officer injured.
Const. Marc Hovingh had been a member of the service for 28 years, OPP Commissioner Thomas Carrique said in a tweet.
"Our hearts are with his family, friends and colleagues at this tragic time," Carrique wrote.
Hovingh was shot and killed while conducting a wellness check on Thursday, a spokesman for the Ontario Provincial Police Association said.
Scott Mills said the officer worked out of the force's Little Current detachment.
Premier Doug Ford noted that a second officer was also shot in the incident.
