N.B. Police Commission investigation into 2015 shooting death of Tracadie man wraps up

The New Brunswick Police Commission has wrapped up a misconduct investigation relating to the shooting death of a Tracadie man near Bathurst's train station in 2015.

Commission's Steve Roberge says the file has been handed over to Bathurst's police chief for review.

If the chief decides the allegations of misconduct are founded, a meeting will be held with Constables Patrick Bulger and Mathieu Boudreau to decide on corrective measures which could include reprimand or dismissal.

If unfounded, then the file will go to arbitration.

Roberge says details surrounding the allegations will be kept under wraps unless the case goes to arbitration.

Last year a judge withdrew manslaughter charges, relating to the shooting death of 51 year old Michel Vienneau, against the two officers after it was determined the Crown failed to meet the threshold of evidence required to order a trial.
