Officers attended the residence at approximately 2:30 p.m. and confirmed injuries on a 28-year-old female. As the whereabouts of the 26-year-old male were unknown at the time, officers requested five warrants for the arrest of the male suspect including, assault causing bodily harm (x2), unlawful confinement, intimidation and uttering threats.
Later in the evening, at approximately 9:02 p.m., police received information that the male suspect had returned to the residence and conducted a break and enter. With the assistance of the EPS Canine Unit, officers contained the dwelling due to the emergent circumstances. A short time later, the male suspect exited the residence and a confrontation occurred between officers and the 26-year-old. Officers subsequently discharged their service weapons and struck the male. Officers administered first-aid until EMS arrived. The male was pronounced deceased on scene.
No EPS officers were injured in this incident.
The EPS will not be providing further comment as the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT) has since taken the lead of this investigation.
