FREDERICTON (CP) — Police say there will be no charges in connection with the wounding of an RCMP officer in northern New Brunswick in April of last year, where the bullet came from the gun of his colleague.
Cpl. Chantal Farrah says charges were ruled out following an investigation by the Quebec provincial police.
At the time, police said the incident occurred following a chase near Campbellton when the Mounties stopped a man wanted on a number of warrants.
The RCMP, New Brunswick Crown Prosecutors office and the Quebec provincial police will not say how the officer was shot — just that the investigation is complete and there won’t be charges.
Farrah says neither officer was suspended.
She says an administrative review is being done and a formal hearing under the RCMP Act is pending.
