Saskatoon girl shaken up after officer-involved capturing
Just steps away from Nadine Sapp’s home, police shot a man.
“I live right here, so it kind of shakes you up a bit and it happened during broad daylight,” Sapp told CTV News.
“It’s concerning, it’s very concerning,” Sapp said.
Around 11:35 am Wednesday, police responded to a report of an armed male at a home in the 200 block of Avenue L South, according to Saskatoon Police Service (SPS).
The caller reported a fight broke out at the door and the suspect ran on foot with a handgun and machete.
Police said the 35-year-old was shot by officers after a police confrontation. He was taken to hospital for his injuries.
SPS has asked Regina Police Service to investigate the incident.
Under provincial legislation, serious police-involved incidents are examined by an outside police service.
The province is also assigning two independent observers to the investigation.
The last officer-involved shooting in Saskatoon happened in December 2020.
