IIO is investigating a deadly shot associated with the police on Vancouver Island


A man has died following a conflict with Llyn Shawnigan RCMP on Saturday afternoon.

Mounties said they were called to a home on the 1100-block of Mill Bay Road in connection with an assault investigation, adding that their intention was to arrest a man.

When they arrived at home, the officers said that the man "had developed weapons on them."

The Force tried to use Taser but was unsuccessful and instead fired in the man.

The man was smoked to hospital and since then he has been injured. No-one else was hurt.

The Office of Independent Investigation has been notified and will investigate the event.

Anyone with information will be asked to call the IIO on 1-855-446-8477.
