Man shot dead by RNC officer, OPP to investigate

The Ontario Provincial Police have been called in to investigate an incident in which an on-duty Royal Newfoundland Constabulary officer shot and killed a man in a house in Corner Brook on Tuesday night.

The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team will conduct an independent, external review of the OPP's investigation, according to a statement sent Wednesday by the provincial government's Department of Justice and Public Safety.

"I ask the community to have faith in our abilities and to have patience as we work with the OPP and ASIRT to find answers following this tragic event," said RNC Chief Joe Boland.
