The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT) is investigating after police shot and killed a man wanted for outstanding warrants while they attempted to arrest him at a west Edmonton parking lot Saturday night.

Officers attempted to arrest the suspect who was driving a vehicle in the McDonald’s parking lot on Groat Road and 113 Avenue at approximately 8:15 p.m.

The suspect attempted to flee the parking lot, but collided with an EPS vehicle. A confrontation then broke out, and officers shot and killed the 29-year-old man, police said.


A neighbour heard between eight to 10 gun shots.

“I was just playing some video games, and then I just heard, ‘bang bang,’ and I was like, ‘Oh, that’s not my game. That's across the street’,” Robert Schumacher said.

Police also found a firearm at the scene.

Officers were unharmed, police said.
