Vancouver Police Review of RCMP Officer-Involved Shooting of Angus Mitchell Completed

The Vancouver Police have completed their external review of the RCMP officer-involved shooting of 26 year old Angus Mitchell in Maple Ridge on May 30, 2012.

The review was completed by the Vancouver Police at the request of the RCMP.

Angus David Mitchell and his van were found on 216th Street near 132nd Avenue after he was the subject of a public warning by the RCMP in relation to two previous shootings in Burnaby. Shortly after Mitchell was located, shots were fired at police. The officers returned fire and Mitchell was fatally wounded.

Investigators with the Vancouver Police Major Crime Section have concluded that there is no evidence to support charges against any of the officers involved and will not be forwarding a report to Crown Counsel.

The review of the shooting has been provided to the Coroners Office for an inquest that will be held allowing for public presentation of evidence to examine the circumstances surrounding this death.
