61-year-old man dead after being shot by police
A man is dead after being shot by police, an incident that is now being investigated.
At 10:15 p.m. Friday (Jan. 17), the recently formed Independent Investigations Office (IIO) was called in to probe a police shooting at 11800-block of 98A Avenue in North Surrey.
Police were called to a residence to "check on the welfare of an adult male," according to an IIO release. Some time after arriving, and for reasons yet unknown, a police officer shot 61-year-old Gaetan Gilbert Plante, who later died in hospital.
Because of the preliminary nature of the investigation, few other details are known at this point.
More as it becomes known.
