N.S. police watchdog investigating after RCMP fatally shoot man in Moncton

Nova Scotia’s independent police watchdog is investigating after a man was shot and killed by the RCMP in Moncton on Saturday.

New Brunswick RCMP say that at approximately 2 p.m., officers responded to a call on Somerset Street.

At the scene, police say officers encountered a man who produced a weapon and “took actions that were threatening” to the Mounties.

“In response to these actions, a conductive energy device was discharged,” Staff-Sgt. André Pepin, a spokesperson for the RCMP, said in a press release.
