N.D.G. man killed by police described as a loving father

The family of Nicholas Gibbs, the 23-year-old gunned down last Thursday by police after reportedly threatening officers with a knife, says he was a loving father whose death has devastated his loved ones.

A GoFundMe campaign has been launched to raise $15,000 for funeral expenses and to help his common-law wife and her four children, all under age seven, move to a different home, since she does not feel comfortable living near the Notre-Dame-de-Grâce location where Gibbs was shot.

“He was always 100-per-cent there for his kids,” Laura Ashley Buxton-Heaton, the girlfriend of Gibbs’s brother, Shawn Harewood, said Sunday.
