EDMONTON - An inquiry report says there is nothing police could have done differently in the shooting death of an Edmonton woman three years ago.

Bernadette Auger, who was 48, died from two gunshots to the head and neck outside her apartment building in January 2010.

A hearing into Auger's death heard that police had gone to the apartment after a 911 call and found her with what they thought was a gun in her hand.

She followed the officers outside and two of them shot her when, despite repeated orders to drop the weapon, she pointed it toward a police dog handler.

The gun turned out to be a toy pistol that had been altered to look real.

Auger's common-law partner told police he believed she wanted them to shoot her and had tried to commit suicide before.

Inquiry judge S.E. Richardson wrote that "the attending police took all evasive and non-lethal approaches to deal with the threat posed by Ms. Auger."

Richardson made no recommendations.
