The 24-year-old man fatally shot by RCMP on Sunday afternoon in Moncton's Sunny Brae neighbourhood was wielding a knife, according to the police watchdog investigating the death.

The Serious Incident Response Team was called in after the man was shot dead in his apartment during an altercation with police around 2 p.m. on Somerset Drive.

Felix Cacchione, director of SIRT, the independent body that investigates serious injuries or deaths at the hands of police, said the man had a "long" kitchen knife as he moved toward an RCMP officer in the apartment.
