Alberta RCMP officer involved shooting in Maskwacis

by pmnationtalk on December 2, 202250 Views

On Dec. 1, 2022, at approximately 1:23 p.m. Maskwacis RCMP received a report from a concerned resident that a male had a firearm and had been discharging it in the rural area. Upon officers arrival, a confrontation occurred in which an officer discharged their service pistol and the suspect was injured. Officers administered first aid and emergency medical personnel were dispatched.

The injured male, a 27-year-old resident of Maskwacis, has been taken by STARS to hospital where he was last reported as in critical life threatening condition.

No officers were injured in this incident.

The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT) has taken over carriage of the investigation into the circumstances of the officer involved shooting.

The Alberta RCMP believes in processes that seek the facts and it’s important that processes taken to assess the actions of all those involved, including the police, are fair, transparent, and defendable. This is why, as soon as we became aware of this incident, we immediately notified the Director of Law Enforcement and initiated our internal review process.

Independent of ASIRT’s investigation, the Alberta RCMP’s internal review process has been implemented to gather a full account of what took place during this incident. RCMP training, policy, police response, and the duty status of the members involved will be subject to review. The Alberta RCMP is, of course, fully cooperating with ASIRT and will not be commenting further on this incident. All media inquiries about this incident should now be directed to ASIRT at 780-641-9099.
