Man shot by police dies
The man shot by police outside New Westminster's Starlight Casino on Nov. 8 has died in hospital according to the agency in charge of the investigation.
The Independent Investigations Office (IIO) was called in to take over after the man was shot by police at about 10:45 that morning after a standoff that held police at bay for several hours. New Westminster police also closed off access to the Queensborough Bridge during the morning rush hour for the public's safety.
An IIO release said the man died Sunday evening, and the investigation into the circumstances surrounding his death is continuing. The release also said the BC Coroners Service is responsible for identifying the man.
