Killam RCMP – officer involved shooting

From RCMP

Hardisty, Alta. – At 5:20 p.m. today, the Killam RCMP with the assistance of Provost and Wainwright RCMP and the Eastern Alberta District Crime Reduction Unit were attempting to apprehend a male suspect when a confrontation occurred that resulted in RCMP officers discharging their service weapons.

Prior to this, the RCMP were pursuing a suspect vehicle on Highway 13 near Hardisty.  The vehicle was believed to be the same vehicle involved in an earlier incident with the Killam RCMP. Several tire deflation devices were used in an attempt to stop the vehicle.  The vehicle went into the ditch and a male got out of the vehicle. The confrontation followed.

The adult male was treated on scene by EMS and transported to an Edmonton hospital in serious condition.  The RCMP members involved were not injured.   The male was the sole occupant of the truck.

The Director of Law Enforcement has been notified and the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT) has been directed to investigate the circumstances surrounding the officer involved shooting and the actions of police. The RCMP will continue to investigate the actions of the man and the events leading up to the confrontation with police.

RCMP have laid charges, including first degree murder, against a 54-year-old male after yesterday’s homicide of a Red Deer physician at the Village Mall Walk-In Clinic.

Deng Mabiour of Red Deer faces the following charges:

  • First degree murder
  • Assault of a police officer
  • Assault with weapon

Mabiour assaulted 45-year-old Walter Reynolds in the Village Mall Walk-In Clinic shortly after 11 a.m. on August 10. Reynolds was transported to hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

“This was not a random attack, and the first degree murder charge speaks to the premeditated nature of this incident,” said Supt. Gerald Grobmeier, Officer in Charge of the Red Deer RCMP.
“There were many witnesses and people who acted bravely during this assault, and we encourage anyone to reach out for support as these incidents can be traumatic and difficult to process.”

Red Deer Victim Services is available to anyone looking for support and can be reached by calling 403-306-2345.

Red Deer RCMP wishes to thank the quick responses from witnesses at the clinic, The City of Red Deer Emergency Services, Red Deer Transit and RCMP Major Crimes.

Mabiour is scheduled to appear in Red Deer Provincial Court on August 12.

Charges likely in fatal attack at central Alberta medical clinic: RCMP

Published on

RED DEER, Alta. — Mounties say they anticipate charges will be laid after a man was killed in a violent attack at a medical clinic in central Alberta yesterday.

A witness told media outlets that it was her family doctor who was slain at the walk-in clinic in Red Deer, and that the suspect had a hammer and a machete.

Supt. Gerald Grobmeier held a news conference last night but wouldn’t confirm details.

He says a suspect is in custody and charges are likely.

Grobmeier says other staff and patients were in the Village Mall Walk-In Clinic at the time of the attack and will likely suffer trauma because of what they saw.

He describes it as an isolated but extremely brazen crime.

“I am sickened to learn that a member of our community died in such a violent tragedy,” Grobmeier said.

“My heart goes out to the family … no one expects that.”

He said one officer was struck with a blunt weapon during the arrest, and was treated for minor injuries.

Premier Jason Kenney and Health Minister Tyler Shandro both tweeted that they were saddened to hear about the fatal attack on the doctor.

Dr. Christine Molnar, president of the Alberta Medical Association, said in a statement that the organization will be reaching out to local medical staff for support.
