Charges against the RCMP officer accused of fatally shooting a Surrey, B.C., man in 2015 have been stayed.
Const. Elizabeth Cucheran fired 12 shots at Hudson Brooks, 20, near the RCMP South Surrey detachment on 152 Street near 18 Avenue, hitting him nine times and hitting her own leg once.
Cucheran was later charged with aggravated assault and assault with a weapon.
Crown spokesperson Dan McLaughlin says that after analyzing the evidence that was presented at Cucheran's preliminary inquiry last year, the case no longer satisfies the charge assessment threshold.
