The province's police watchdog says it's investigating after a woman was seriously injured in a shooting involving provincial police in Almonte. 

The Special Investigations Unit says two OPP officers went to a home on Tuesday morning as part of an investigation.

The SIU says while the officers were on the porch of the house two dogs came out of the home and both officers were bitten.

The agency says one officer discharged her firearm multiple times at one of the dogs and a bullets struck and seriously injured a 64-year-old woman who was on the porch with the officers.

The woman and both officers were taken to hospital for treatment, while the dog died of its injuries at the scene.

The SIU is an arm's-length agency that investigates reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault.
