SASKATOON — Police opened fire on a fleeing vehicle after it struck a pedestrian and a police cruiser following the Victoria Day shooting death of a 31-year-old man in Saskatoon.
Police say an officer thought he heard shots and later discovered a fatally wounded man on the street.
The officer saw suspects fleeing in a vehicle, which caused minor injuries when it collided with a pedestrian as it sped away.
The car was eventually tracked down, but the driver crashed into a cruiser and a light standard before at least one officer fired at the suspects.
The vehicle was soon brought to a halt and the occupants were arrested.
Two men ages 19 and 23 from Toronto, a 21-year-old man from Edmonton and a 23-year-old Saskatoon woman are facing firearm-related charges.
