Police Watchdog ASIRT Investigating Edmonton Police Service Officer Involved Shooting

Alberta’s police watchdog, the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team, is investigating after the Edmonton Police Service says one of its officers shot a 19-year-old woman on Tuesday after 5:55 p.m.

In a news release, EPS said it was called to a home near 64 Avenue and 172 Street to respond to a family dispute between that 19-year-old and a pre-teen girl. Police say that once they got inside the home, a confrontation with the woman ensued.

Police say they used a conducted energy weapon – commonly referred to as a Taser – on the woman. One of the officers then shot her with a firearm.

Paramedics with EMS treated and transported the woman to the hospital, having sustained serious, non-life-threatening injuries.

No officers were physically injured in the incident.
