The man who shot two RCMP officers outside Edmonton on the weekend was charged with over 100 offences dating back to 1994, CBC News has learned.

Shawn Maxwell Rehn, 34, was found dead in a rural home near St. Albert, Alta., after shooting two Mounties during an arrest at the Apex Casino early Saturday morning.

Aux. Const. Derek Bond and Const. David Wynn were both severely injured.

Bond was released from hospital later in the day, while Wynn is not expected to survive.
