Edmonton police say officers shot and killed suspect they were trying to arrest

EDMONTON — Police in Edmonton say officers fatally shot a man after they tried to arrest him.

Police say the man was driving a vehicle in a shopping centre parking lot in the city's northwest on Saturday evening when officers attempted to arrest him on outstanding warrants.

They allege the 29-year-old suspect collided with a police vehicle in an attempt to flee, and that police tried to use their vehicles to box his vehicle in.

Police say there was a confrontation and that's when officers fired their guns.

They say a firearm was subsequently found at the scene.

No officers were injured.

The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team, which investigates serious incidents involving police in Alberta, has now taken over the investigation.
