Nova Scotia’s independent police watchdog, the Serious Incident Response Team (SIRT), has concluded two RCMP officers who shot at the fire hall in Lower Onslow, N.S., during the manhunt for Gabriel Wortman should not face criminal charges.
The SIRT report said the two officers who fired their weapons did so believing the person they were shooting at was the gunman. This is because he was dressed similarly to the gunman — wearing a yellow and orange reflective vest — and standing near a marked RCMP cruiser at the time of the shooting.
In this bonus episode, producers Sarah Ritchie and Alex Kress bring you the breaking news and explain what new information is in the SIRT report.
We also hear reaction once again from the firefighters who say the police “terrorized” them on April 19, and have never apologized.
