Toronto's police watchdog has decided that it will bring no charges against police officers, following their investigation of an incident that caused the death of 43-year-old, Rodrigo Almonacid Gonzalez on Thursday.

According to CTV News, the civilian oversight unit saw that officers had exhausted all possible opportunities to non-violently deescalate the situation, and were therefore justified in using tasers.

Gonzalez was tasered 5 times by one officer and 3 times by another officer before he was subdued and taken to a hospital, where he died the next day.
