A man is dead after an officer-involved shooting at a residence on O’Chiese First Nation.
Rocky Mountain House RCMP recently responded to a complaint of a disturbance at the residence. When officers arrived, they encountered a known individual who went back inside the residence and closed the door.
“Police checks confirmed that the individual had outstanding warrants,” Alberta RCMP said in a release Saturday.
“Police secured the area and began taking the necessary steps to obtain a warrant to enter the home. It was at this time the individual exited the home and a confrontation ensued.”
The 24-year-old man was pronounced dead on scene. No RCMP officers sustained injuries during the confrontation.
The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team is investigating the incident.
