ASIRT investigating after Edmonton Police officer shoots youth who was robbing another youth at gunpoint

At about 6  p.m. on Monday, Feb. 3, 2020, an Edmonton Police Service (EPS) officer came upon a personal robbery in progress in the area of 86 Street and 130 Avenue.

The officer, who was in the area conducting other investigations, observed a male youth being robbed at gunpoint by another youth.

The officer called NE patrol for response. As patrol was setting up containment at the scene, the suspect came out of a townhouse and a confrontation ensued between the suspect and officers, which resulted in one of the members discharging his service weapon.

The youth suspect sustained non-life-threatening injuries and was treated and taken to hospital.

No officers were harmed during this incident.

The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT) has since taken the lead in this investigation.
