WINNIPEG – An inquest has been called in connection to the high profile shooting death of a man by Winnipeg Police officers near Kapyong Barracks.
It happened almost a year ago when 24-year-old Mark Dicesare led police on a chase down Kenaston.
Some witnesses claimed he was waving a gun out the window of his car.
He was eventually surrounded in a field near the barracks, where he was shot dead by police.
Inquests are mandatory when someone is killed by cops in the line of duty.
The idea is to figure out what happened and how similar deaths can be prevented moving forward.
The whole thing is still under investigation by our police watchdog, the Independent Investigation Unit.
