Ontario's Special Investigations Unit has closed its investigation into Ottawa police officers, after a man was injured jumping off a roof. 

Officers were called to a home on Kirkwood Avenue and Carling Avenue for a dispute, back on July 6. 

While speaking with one of the men involved, a second man took off running and eventually climbed to the roof of a nearby school. 

From the ground, the officers encouraged him to get down, which he did by jumping and injuring his foot. 

The Acting Director of the SIU found the man was responsible for his own injury, sustained in a bid to evade police.
