Police justified in fatally shooting man in Red Deer rampage, ASIRT finds

Two RCMP officers justifiably shot and killed a sexual-assault suspect who went on a drug-fuelled rampage in a front-end loader near Red Deer on Christmas Day 2015, an investigation has found.

"The force used was necessary and reasonable in all the circumstances, notwithstanding the tragic outcome," Susan Hughson, executive director of the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team, told a news conference Monday in Edmonton.

"Operating this front-end loader in the manner he did resulted it becoming a weaponized, 35,000-lb. blunt instrument that was much more difficult to stop or contain than any other standard vehicle."
