FREDERICTON — A coroner’s inquest will look into the police killing of an Indigenous man in New Brunswick in June.
The provincial government says the Rodney Levi inquest will start after investigations and any potential court proceedings are done.
Levi, 48, was attending a barbecue on June 12 near the Metepenagiag Mi’kmaq Nation when someone allegedly called police to complain about an “unwanted person.”
The Mounties have said a suspect carrying knives was jolted with a stun gun, but that failed to subdue him. He was shot when he charged at officers, police said.
The province had already announced an inquest into the death of Chantel Moore, an Indigenous woman shot and killed by Edmundston police during a wellness check June 4.
