The Independent Investigations Office (IIO) of British Columbia wrapped up an investigation of the circumstances surrounding a death in Enderby, they announced on Friday.

On August 5, 2021, just after midnight, police responded to a campsite near Enderby following allegations that a man had assaulted two women with a weapon. Independent witnesses confirm that the man suffered self-inflicted injuries and left the campsite in a vehicle (RV).

Police found the man at 2:00 AM. Officers used tear gas and a 40mm less-lethal round; at 3:00 AM, the man was found to be in medical distress; the officers then provided aid.

The man was declared dead by the Emergency Health Services, who arrived nearby a few minutes later.

The evidence suggests that the death of the man was not due to police actions. The IIO investigation has now been closed.

The IIO is British Columbia’s independent civilian oversight agency. It is responsible for investigating all incidents involving officers that cause serious harm or death, regardless of any allegations of wrongdoing.
