Watchdog Still Won’t Say How Indigenous Man Died in Police Shooting

A 29-year-old Indigenous man died shortly after two cops shot at him following a manhunt in northern Alberta last week, according to a report from the province’s police watchdog.

The RCMP, Canada’s federal police force, said at a press conference last week Lionel Ernest Grey from Gift Lake Metis Settlement died following a two-day manhunt but would not say how. The incident also resulted in the death of a police dog.

Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT), a watchdog that investigates police shootings, released a report on the incident Monday that does not explicitly say the man was killed by police, but elaborates that “both officers discharged their service firearms” and the man “fell to the ground in the tall grass” and died at the scene.
