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.
