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.
