29-year-old man was shot and wounded by RCMP responding to a break-in call in September

A man who was shot and wounded by RCMP responding to a break-in call last month will go to trial in March.

On Sept. 21, just after 6 p.m., police received a 911 call about a break and enter in progress by an individual known to the homeowner in the area of Maxwell Avenue in Morrisroe.

Police responded and located a suspect. During a confrontation, an officer fired their service weapon and the suspect was injured, said police.

Officers provided first aid until emergency medical services arrived. The injured man was taken to hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. No RCMP officers were injured.

A 29-year-old Red Deer man will go to trial on March 30 on charges of assaulting a peace officer with a weapon, entering a house without lawful excuse and committing an indictable offence, and failing to comply with probation.
