No charges recommended against officer who killed South Sudanese man last year: Manitoba police watchdog

The Winnipeg police officer who shot and killed a 43-year-old man while responding to a call at a Colony Street apartment building last February should not be criminally charged, Manitoba's police watchdog concluded in its final report into the incident.

The use of lethal force by the officer who shot Machuar Madut, 43, on Feb. 23, 2019, was "reasonable, necessary, justified and unavoidable," said the report from the Independent Investigation Unit of Manitoba, which investigates all serious incidents involving police officers in the province.

In the days following Madut's death, Winnipeg's South Sudanese community condemned the shooting of the man, who came to Canada in 2003 after fleeing war in Sudan.
