Investigators have released more details about the weekend’s incident in Cochrane, Alta., that led to a 28-year-old man being shot and killed.
According to a release from the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team, RCMP and their emergency response team went to the West Valley residence with a warrant to enter the home after receiving information that the man inside had several firearms. The man was under a previous court condition prohibiting him from having guns, ASIRT said.

Police contacted the man on the phone, but several hours of negotiation failed to coax the man out to surrender.
During the negotiations, RCMP pulled an armoured vehicle behind the home, opposite the attached garage. ASIRT said five to six shots were fired through the overhead garage door in the general direction of the armoured vehicle.
