2 Mounties shot in St. Albert, Alberta
The Metro News is reporting that "two uniformed RCMP officers were shot in St. Albert and injured early Saturday morning during an interaction with a civilian.The officers suffered significant injuries and are being treated in hospital." CBC is reporting that the suspect has been shot dead and the two mounties have been identified. MSN News reported that the officers were shot at the Apex casino while investigating a stolen car complain. CBC is reporting that Shawn Rehn has been identified as the suspect who sot the police officers.
Update: Blog readers are correct. The picture of the suspect in the Edmonton Journal and in the Calgary Sun clearly show him weaning a bandana that says support the Edmonton Hells Angels. Which makes you wonder where he got the stolen vehicle from since the Calgary Hells Angels ended up in possession of some stolen cars from the Kelowna Hells Angles stolen car ring that Johnny Newcome was revining.
Update: Sadly, it appears that one of the officers will not survive.
