Police investigating if mould complaint related to killingThe 57-year-old landlord died after a standoff with police ended in "an exchange of gunfire" with a police officer, according to the Special Investigations Unit (SIU), a police oversight body.
Hamilton police say a dispute between the landlord and tenants before the shootings may have been related to a complaint about mould in the rental unit.
Det. Sgt. Steve Bereziuk told CBC News on Monday the tenants complained about the issue sometime before their landlord shot them as they tried to flee the house on May 27.
"That's what we're investigating to see if that's in fact what this was about," he said.
"I think the big question is why did this happen, a lot of people want to know that. We may never be able to answer that."
