Inquest into police shooting of a Hazelton man continues

Family members of a Hazelton man fatally shot by transit police in Surrey were visibly emotional as a coroner’s inquest heard testimony today from the officer who pulled the trigger.

Constable Pamela McKinnon said 23-year-old Naverone Woods was bleeding profusely from his abdomen while he jogged on the spot with a knife in each hand during the December 2014 altercation.

McKinnon said she and her partner repeatedly yelled at Woods to drop the knives but he appeared not to hear them and then lunged at her partner, prompting her to fire twice.

The Independent Investigations Office, which investigates serious cases involving police, cleared the officers of any wrongdoing last spring.
