No charges for police involved in deadly 2016 shooting outside Canadian Tire

After a years-long investigation that suffered lengthy delays due to disagreements with police, the Independent Investigations Office has cleared the officers involved in a fatal shooting outside a Canadian Tire in East Vancouver.

The police watchdog determined the three officers who opened fire on 38-year-old Daniel Peter Rintoul back in November 2016 were dealing with a potentially deadly threat, which justified their use of force.

In a report on the shooting released Friday, the IIO said "all of the evidence supports the reasonableness and necessity of the decisions by (the officers) to shoot."
