Inquest offers no recommendations in fatal 2007 police shooting of Canadian Forces vet

An inquest into the death of a former member of the Canadian Forces killed in a December 2007 confrontation with Winnipeg police offers no recommendations for change.

The report, released on Wednesday, concludes officers did everything right, were properly trained and had the appropriate equipment.

Roy Thomas Bell, 44, died from multiple gunshot wounds during the showdown with police.

Officers were called just before 11 p.m. on Dec. 17, 2007, about a man threatening residents at an apartment block on Langside Street near Cornish Avenue. When officers arrived, police said, Bell was in possession of a gun and another weapon, possibly a bat.
