Fatal shooting by Edmonton police under investigation by ASIRT

Edmonton police shot and killed a 34-year-old wanted man Wednesday afternoon after an "incident" in the city's east end.

Officers were following the man in a vehicle at around 2 p.m. during a surveillance operation, Insp. Trevor Hermanutz told reporters outside police headquarters late Wednesday.

The man had several outstanding warrants and police believed he was armed and dangerous.

Officers conducted a traffic stop with the help of a tactical unit in the area of 79th Avenue and 71st Street, near the Urban Village condo complex. Two people in the vehicle got out without incident.

The man with outstanding warrants remained in the vehicle and refused to co-operate, Hermanutz said.
