The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) says a confrontation between officers and a man, on the territory of the Cold Lake First Nation in the north of Alberta, ended in officers being fired at and the death of “the suspect”.
In a statement, RCMP say they responded in response to a gun complaint from a First Nation home on Saturday morning. Officers reportedly surrounded the residence and attempted to make contact with the man.
RCMP say a confrontation led to at least one officer using his weapon and that upon entering the residence, a 45-year-old male First Nation resident was found dead.
Weapons were found in this residence, say RCMP , but no officers were injured.
The statement said the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team, the watchdog of law enforcement, resumed the investigation into the circumstances of the shooting.
