Fatal police shooting of Steven Campbell justified, but ramming his vehicle was not, judge rules

An RCMP officer was acquitted Aug. 19 of manslaughter and other shooting charges in the Nov. 21, 2015 death of Steven Campbell in Thompson on the grounds that he was legitimately in danger of being seriously hurt or killed by being run over.

RCMP Const. Abram Letkeman was convicted of one count of dangerous driving causing bodily harm for two intentional collisions with the Jeep Campbell was driving, the second of which resulted in a broken pelvis and a neck injury for Campbell’s girlfriend Lori Flett, one of four passengers in the vehicle.
