Calgary officers justified in 2018 Abbeydale shooting: Alberta police watchdog

The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT) says Calgary officers involved in a residential shootout last year that saw a constable badly injured acted reasonably and were justified in their actions.

ASIRT was called in to investigate after a robbery suspect was found dead in a burned-out garage in the community of Abbeydale after being pursued by police.

The incident began to unfold just before 9:30 a.m. on March 27, 2018.

Police rushed to the northeast Calgary community for reports of an armed convenience store robbery, two attempted carjackings and a break-in – all within 20 minutes of each other.
