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.
