Police shoot, kill man

The Independent Investigations Office of B.C. is investigating after a man was shot to death by police.

About 6 a.m. Thursday, RCMP were asked to assist paramedics who were tending to a man who had stabbed himself inside a vehicle on the Inland Island Highway in Qualicum Beach.

Callers to 911 then advised police the man was running down the highway and that someone was trying to restrain him.

A struggle ensued between police and the man, with shots fired by officers. Paramedics provided medical assistance, but the 35-year-old succumbed to his injuries.

Two officers sustained minor injuries during the struggle and were taken to hospital for medical attention.

Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to contact the IIO at 1-855-446-8477.
