No de­ci­sion from in­quest into RCMP shoot­ing

Edmonton Journal - - CITY -

A coro­ner’s in­quest jury has been un­able to de­ter­mine if the fa­tal shoot­ing of an Indige­nous man by RCMP was a homi­cide or a sui­cide.

Bry­don Whit­stone was killed in Oc­to­ber 2017. His mother, Dorothy Labou­cane, said she is dis­ap­pointed. The Saskatchewan RCMP re­sponded to the jury ’s de­ci­sion with con­do­lences to Whit­stone’s fam­ily.

“It is im­por­tant to re­mem­ber that no mat­ter what the in­ves­ti­ga­tions into this in­ci­dent have de­ter­mined, a young man lost his life. His fam­ily and friends are griev­ing his loss.”

An in­ves­ti­ga­tion by Regina po­lice de­ter­mined no crim­i­nal charges should be filed against po­lice.
