A man fatally shot by police Saturday in the Westmount McDonald’s parking lot had been in a downward spiral since his fraternal twin Mitch Dumas died by suicide in 2011, said a high school friend from Drayton Valley Sunday.
Brittany Larson remembers Matt Dumas, 30, as a “nice, decent guy” who was funny and fun to be around. Larson said he was always laughing until Mitch Dumas died. Shortly after, Matt Dumas left Drayton Valley and found himself in trouble.
Larson said Dumas had young children.
Edmonton police were attempting to arrest a suspect on outstanding warrants Saturday night when officers opened fire, leaving a man dead.
