SiRT investigating after police officer discharges weapon

On December 31, 2023, at approximately 10:50 p.m., Pictou County District RCMP responded to an incident at a home on Harbourview Rd. in Pictou Landing First Nation where a man was threatening people who are known to him.

During the response, an RCMP officer discharged their firearm as officers attempted to arrest the suspect. The injured male was provided first aid and transported to hospital by EHS for non-life-threatening injuries. No one else was injured during the incident and the investigation is ongoing.

Pictou County District RCMP has referred the matter to the Nova Scotia Serious Incident Response Team (SiRT). SiRT independently investigates all serious incidents which arise from the actions of police in Nova Scotia. There does not have to be an allegation of wrongdoing.

Given the matter is now being investigated by SiRT, the RCMP will respectfully refrain from discussing further details.
