No charges for Selkirk RCMP officers after man dies in custody: police watchdog

Manitoba's police watchdog has found no wrongdoing on the part of Selkirk RCMP officers after a 54-year-old man died in their custody last year, saying a pathologist determined the man had potentially deadly levels of cocaine in his system.

In the early hours of Dec. 30, 2019, officers responded to the man's residence after he called them. He claimed that two unknown people were inside his house and were shooting arrows at the home, according to a report released Tuesday by the Independent Investigation Unit of Manitoba.

He also said he had been poisoned by needles on his floor.
