Brandon Maurice (17) Killed by Quebec Provincial Police (November 16, 2015)

A teenager, Brandon Maurice (17), was shot and killed by an officer of the Sûreté du Québec (the Québec provincial police force) south of Maniwaki Québec early in the morning of Monday, November 16. The killing began with pursuit of a vehicle driven by the victim by Sûreté du Québec police officers around 1:30 a.m. The pursuit ended at Chemin de la Ferme and Rue Patry, close to Lac Blue Sea in the municipality of Messines at which point the Sûreté du Québec officer got out of a cruiser and approached the suspect vehicle. When the teen attempted to drive away the officer fired his weapon at him striking the young driver at least once. The teen was taken to the hospital in critical condition and police announced Monday afternoon that he had died of his wounds. The name and age of the victim were released by family. Incredibly the investigation into the killing by police is being handled by another police force with its own contentious history of killings of civilians (the Montréal police)
