Alberta’s police watchdog, the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT), has been called in to investigate an incident involving Edmonton police Thursday night.
Police received a call about an aggressive male in the area of 106 Street and 47 Avenue around 9:45 PM. There they found a man who was wanted on a Canada wide warrant who appeared to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Officers believe the man took a number of pills before throwing the bottle off a balcony.
He went into distress and was taken to hospital where he died. (kb/km)
