Suspect in Nanaimo mill shooting to appear in court Sept.16
UPDATE: Addison’s next court appearance is scheduled for Sept.16. The preliminary inquiry is expected to take four days.
The man charged in connection with a workplace shooting at a Nanaimo mill is expected to make his court appearance today.
Forty-seven-year-old Kevin Addison is facing two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder.
The charges stem from a mass shooting at the Western Forest Products Mill on April 30.
Former co-workers have said Addison was among roughly 160 workers laid off from the downtown sawmill in 2008.
The victims of the attack have been identified as 53-year-old Fred Mceachern and 61-year-old Michael Lunn of Nanaimo. Two others were seriously injured.
Addison has made several appearances in Nanaimo provincial court since the shooting.
