Salmon Arm police officers cleared in 2015 shooting

The Salmon Arm police officers involved in a shooting in 2015 will not face charges.

According to the BC Prosecution Service, the two officers were after a man suspected of robbing a gas station.

They tracked him to a derelict barn where the man attacked one of the officers with a baseball bat.

After taking a blow to the arm, the officer shot the suspect multiple times before taking him into custody.

Provincial prosecutors reviewed the case at the time and decided there was insufficient evidence to press charges against the officers.
