The province's Special Investigations Unit ruled police were justified when they shot and wounded the driver of a pickup truck when he failed to stop for police on Cambrian Heights.
The driver fled and when he was found on Bruyere Street, he “drove at the officer, who responded to this situation by drawing their service-issued firearm and discharging two rounds at the vehicle,” the report on the incident said.
“The male had sustained a single gunshot would to his left shoulder, was treated at the hospital and released.”
The SIU investigation found the officer followed proper procedures.
“There was no criminality on behalf of the officer,” said Deputy Chief Al Lekun. “This matter is now completed.”
