EDSON — RCMP say a suspect in the deaths of three people in a house in rural Alberta has been shot by an officer and is being transported to hospital for treatment of his injuries.
Police say no one else was hurt.
Mounties say officers had a warrant to arrest Mickell Clayton Bailey, 29, in the deaths of Roxanne Berube, another female and Daniel Miller. Their bodies were found Sunday in their home near Edson, west of Edmonton.
Police have not released the name of the second female, but friends and family on Facebook identified her as Berube’s teenage daughter.
Bailey is charged with two counts of first-degree murder and one count of second-degree murder.
Police are not releasing the location of where Bailey was shot.
A unit that reviews serious incidents involving police is on scene and investigating.
On Monday, RCMP revealed that three people had been found dead in the home they shared. Autopsy results had not yet been completed, but a police spokesman said the victims suffered “obvious trauma.”
No one else was in the residence or was missing.
Insp. Gibson Glavin said police found the bodies after responding to a call from someone outside the home.
Sylvia Standing said Berube, her goddaughter, was a mother of five who had just started a new job at a McDonald’s in Edson. One of her co-workers, who didn’t want to be named, described Berube as a good worker and a nice person.
According to her Facebook page, Berube was a fan of country and western music and an avid ATVer. She and Miller had apparently met in the late summer of 2013, with Berube announcing to friends “my boyfriend … and I have 10 kids between us and 2 grand babies.”
