Alberta RCMP Kill Man Near Bashaw, Second Killing Within Hours (Oct. 19, 2017)

RCMP in Alberta shot and killed a man near Bashaw around 9:15 AM on the morning of October 19, 2017. It was the second person that RCMP in the province killed within hours, following the killing of someone Gleichen at around 4 AM earlier that morning. The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT) is investigating. It has been reported that RCMP approached what they claim they believed to be a stolen vehicle on Range Road 234 southwest of the town of Alix, which is east of Red Deer. At some point officers fired their weapons hitting the man in the vehicle. The victim was airlifted by Air Ambulance to the University of Alberta Hospital in critical condition with a gunshot wound and later died from those injuries. None of the police claims have been independently confirmed.
