The Independent Investigations Office of BC (IIO) wants to talk to the driver or occupant of a black or dark blue Dodge Ram 1500 in Chilliwack on Feb. 24.
They’re hoping to talk to the person in connection with an investigation into a fatal incident in which a man did not survive after he was hit with a Conducted Energy Weapon (CEW).

The incident unfolded at about 2 p.m., after the RCMP responded to reports of a parental abduction, according to info provided to the IIO.
Before police arrived, a man was confronted by a member of the public who tried to restrain him close to the intersection of Well Road and Vedder Road.
Mounties advised the IIO that the man was hit with the weapon.
He then went into medical distress and did not survive.
