SQ officers involved in 2016 fatal shooting won't face charges

Quebec's director of criminal and penal prosecutions (DPCP) announced that it will not bring charges in the case of a fatal police shooting that took place in Île-Perrot two years ago.

After examining the case put together by Quebec's independent investigations bureau (BEI), the Crown has concluded that Sûreté du Québec police officers did not commit a criminal offence.

The Crown found that shooting the victim did not constitute an excessive use of force.

On Oct. 2, 2016, police received a call about a man who had damaged a family member's vehicle and fled the scene.

He then sent a series of text messages threatening suicide to another family member.

Police said that the man had consumed narcotics.
