Police ethics commissioner orders investigation into 2018 shooting death of Quebec teen

A police ethics commissioner in Quebec is ordering an investigation into the fatal shooting of a Lac-Brome teenager last year.

Riley Fairholm, 17, was shot and killed by Sûreté du Québec (SQ) police officers in the early morning of July 25, 2018 in the Eastern Townships.

The province’s Independent Investigations Bureau (BEI) reported that Fairholm was walking down a main street in Lac-Brome holding an air gun and screaming. After a witness called 911, police officers arrived at the scene and told Fairholm to drop the weapon.
