VPD find no wrongdoing in their officer’s actions in shooting death of Angus Mitchell
Vancouver Police say they have found no wrongdoing on the part of RCMP officers in the police-involved shooting of Angus Mitchell last year.
Mitchell was shot by Ridge Meadows RCMP on May 30, 2012 after a wild police chase across Metro Vancouver.
He was suspected of having a hit list of 10 people and businesses he was planning to target on a murderous rampage.
Mitchell is believed to have shot and killed sushi restaurant owner Huong Tran and his employee Chinh Diem Huynh on May 27. He is also suspected of shooting of his former landlord on May 29.
A coroner’s inquest will be held this November to try to answer any questions surrounding the events.
This case was investigated by the VPD because it took place before the creation of the Independent Investigations Office.
