The Surrey RCMP officer who fatally shot 20-year-old Hudson Brooks in South Surrey in 2015 apologized to the young man’s mother Tuesday.
Const. Elizabeth Cucheran gave her testimony in day two of the BC Coroners Service inquest into the death.
“I have been waiting for almost six years to express my sincerest apologies that you had to bury your son. As a mother myself, I have grieved for you. And I want you to know I never went out there intending for the night to end this way. And I am incredibly sorry for your loss.” Cucheran said.
Brooks was killed outside the Surrey RCMP detachment on 152 Street in July 2015.
