KAM­LOOPS — The civil­ian po­lice watch­dog is in­ves­ti­gat­ing an of­fi­cer-in­volved shoot­ing that left a man dead in Kam­loops.

The In­de­pen­dent In­ves­ti­ga­tions Of­fice of B.C. has sent in­ves­ti­ga­tors to Kam­loops fol­low­ing the shoot­ing late Fri­day.

RCMP said in a state­ment they were called to a re­port of a sus­pi­cious man in a Kam­loops sub­di­vi­sion about 4:30 p.m.

They said there was a re­ported ex­change of gun­shots, and a man was found dead.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors said no of­fi­cers or any other mem­bers of the pub­lic were in­jured in the in­ci­dent.

The state­ment said the In­de­pen­dent In­ves­ti­ga­tions of­fice will check if there is any link be­tween po­lice ac­tions and the man’s death.
