Officers won’t be charged after man killed in police shooting

The three officers involved in the fatal shooting of a 26-year-old man in Winnipeg won’t be charged, following an investigation by Manitoba’s police watchdog.

The altercation took place on the evening of Jan. 11, 2019, when Winnipeg police officers were looking for a man wanted in connection to a domestic assault. The Independent Investigation Unit said when police found the suspect, who was acting “suspiciously,” they tried to stop and question him, but he ran off.

Police chased after him and requested back-up from other officers, saying the suspect had a hatchet on him.
