Report Content Issue: * Copyright Infringment Spam Invalid Contents Broken Links Your Name: * Your Email: * Details: * Submit Report From Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT) Investigation continues into RCMP officer-involved shooting On April 6, 2019, at approximately 8:15 a.m., RCMP were advised of an Eckville, Alberta location where stolen oilfield property might be found. An RCMP officer responded to the reported location at the rear of a strip of businesses on the north side of Eckville. The officer found four vehicles at the location. As the officer was checking the vehicles, he located a man who appeared to be sleeping in a Ford F250 truck and made cursory observations of the interior of the vehicle. The officer returned to his police vehicle and checked the licence plate number, which came back registered to a different vehicle. The officer requested assistance to his location, placed a spike belt and returned to his police vehicle to await assistance. While the officer was waiting for assistance, a confrontation occurred that resulted in the officer discharging his service pistol. The man sustained a single gunshot wound that resulted in serious, but not life-threatening injuries. He was treated on scene by EMS, transported to hospital and admitted. He remains in hospital. The Ford F250 was determined to have been stolen approximately 5 days earlier from Saskatoon and the licence plate was also determined to have been stolen. With the investigation underway, ASIRT will not make any further comment until the matter is concluded.
