Court records show the man who shot two Alberta Mounties was a violent criminal awaiting trial on multiple charges the day he died.

EDMONTON — Court records show the man who shot two Alberta Mounties was a violent criminal awaiting trial on multiple charges the day he died.

Shawn Rehn was found dead in an acreage home north of Edmonton Saturday morning, just hours after the shooting at a nearby casino.

One of the officers, Const. David Wynn, was hit in the head and police say he is not expected to survive.

Court records indicate Rehn, who was 34, was facing multiple charges dating back over a year, including resisting a peace officer, weapons offences, dangerous driving and possession of stolen property.

His voluminous adult criminal record dates back to when he was 18, with convictions that include assault, assault with a weapon, break-ins, having stolen property and possessing illegal drugs.

In 2001 he was given a 10-year firearms prohibition.
