Shooting Victim Known To Police

A man shot to death by a police officer last week in the Sicamous area was no stranger to Kelowna RCMP.

Graham Maryancik, 29, was shot to death last Wednesday at a rest stop west of Sicamous.

Police say the van he was driving crashed into two parked vehicles before going down an embankment.

A police officer investigating the incident was attacked by Maryancik and was forced to shoot him.

In 2002, Maryancik was one of five men charged in connection with a methamphetamine lab bust in the Kelowna area.

Maryancik was also known to deal in steroids.
