Man dead after police shooting in southern Alberta

CALGARY -- Cochrane RCMP and the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT) are investigating after a standoff with police in the community Friday night left one man dead.

Officers say they were called to a home after there were concerns about the safety of a man and his partner.

Police were also told he had numerous firearms in his possession.

Upon arrival, police say the man barricaded himself inside the home and ignored commands to come out.

A police negotiator was also brought in, but the man did not come out.

RCMP say "alternate means were deployed to force the man out," at which point a confrontation occurred and the man was shot by an officer.
