Man shot by police last month says he was unarmed

A man shot by police March 30 in northeast Edmonton remains in hospital facing no charges, claiming he was unarmed when a plainclothes officer opened fire.

In a statement this week through his lawyer, Bradley Ladouceur said there was no reason for the officer to have fired at him near 128 Avenue and 54 Street around 6 p.m. on March 30.

“In his view, the police had no reason to shoot him,” Ladouceur’s lawyer Samantha Labahan wrote in the statement.

She added that Ladouceur suffered one gunshot wound, and remains in hospital in “relatively stable” condition
