The suspect of a rampage received CPR. The British Columbia’s police watchdog is no longer investigating a rampage that left a 22-year old man dead while 11 people are injured in a First Nation band office.
The Mounties were called to the Lillooet-area Bridge River Indian Band office and found a suspect restrained and not breathing.
The officers performed CPR but could not resuscitate the man who was later identified by the coroner as band member David James. He has gone from room to room attacking people with a weapon.
The Independent Investigations Office stated that there was no link between his death and the officers’ action, thus it is no longer involved in the case.
