No charges against police officer who killed armed man

A Calgary police officer has been cleared of any wrongdoing in the fatal shooting of a man last June.

CALGARY — A Calgary police officer has been cleared of any wrongdoing in the fatal shooting of a man last June.

The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team — also known as ASIRT — says the officer acted lawfully when he opened fire and no charges will be laid.

Corey Peeace, who was 40, was shot four times after police responded to a 911 call.

Peeace was armed with a knife and near a young woman.

ASIRT executive director Clif Purvis says the three-year officer believed the woman was at risk of injury or death.

Purvis says the team gathered witness accounts about what happened as part of the investigation.
