Crown counsel is considering whether to lay charges against a RCMP officer in connection with a July 2015 shooting involving the Salmon Arm RCMP that left one person with serious injuries.
The shooting took place after police were called to deal with a report of an armed robbery at a Sicamous gas station around 5:00 p.m. on July 3, 2015.
“The affected person fled the scene in a vehicle. He was subsequently located with the assistance of a police service dog. During the exchange with the affected person, officers challenged and subsequently shot the male. He was transported to hospital for treatment,” said the IIO in a media release shortly after the incident.
In July 2015 the IIO said a baseball bat was found at the scene.
The IIO investigates cases where police are involved and people are killed or seriously hurt.
