More details are emerging from a police-related shooting this weekend.
On Mar. 4, the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT) was directed to investigate an incident in which a 40-year-old man was shot during an encounter with Strathcona County RCMP.

At around 3:45 a.m., RCMP officers arrived at a residence near Sherwood Park to assist Emergency Medical Services personnel responding to a call of a man in the home with a self-inflicted stab wound. For safety reasons, the paramedics waited outside the home for the officers.
While in the home, three officers discharged their service pistols. The man was treated by the paramedics on scene, who then brought him to an Edmonton hospital in serious but stable condition.
No one else was injured during the incident.
Further information will be available when the ASIRT investigation is complete.
