MIRAMICHI – The Office of the independent surveys (EIB) will investigate the death of an aboriginal man that occurred Friday evening in New Brunswick.
It is at the request of the RCMP that the EIB has agreed to the taking in charge of the investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of a man during a police intervention at Miramichi.
Rodney Levi, a member of the First Mi’kmaq Nation Metepenagiag, was killed a week after the death of Chantel Moore, a native of British Columbia, reported Saturday on Global News.
The man armed with a knife was chased by the police, before one of them makes use of a weapon to electrical pulse in order to master it. But to no avail.
“One of the policemen then opened fire on the man,” said a press release from the EIB, which has made a call to the Sûreté du Québec (SQ) to support him in his investigation.
Eight investigators of the EIB have been responsible for determining the exact circumstances surrounding this event.
The Eib is also investigating the death of Chantel Moore.
