Inquest ordered in RCMP shooting of Rodney Levi – CBC
Second inquest into police killing of First Nations person in New Brunswick
Jul 28, 2020
The fatal shooting of Rodney Levi by RCMP last month will be examined through a coroner’s inquest.
Coreen Enos, a spokesperson for the province’s Department of Public Safety, confirmed in an email Tuesday that an inquest will take place sometime in the future.
The announcement means there are now three coroner’s inquests that will take place in the province into fatal police shootings, and the second called this year to look at the death of a First Nations person at the hands of police.
Inquests are formal court proceedings where evidence related to a person’s death is publicly presented to a jury that can make recommendations on how to potentially avoid similar deaths in the future.
