'They ganged up on him': Wife of Igloolik man killed by police heard shots fired

 


Mary Ijjangiaq wept Monday as she told a coroner's jury how she watched her husband, Felix Taqqaugaq, get shot in their Igloolik home by the RCMP.

The fact-finding inquest — mandatory for police-involved deaths — is looking into the circumstances into Taqqaugaq's death. A jury will come up with recommendations on how to make systematic improvements to avoid an incident like this happening again.

Ijjangiaq recounted how March 20, 2012 started out as a good day. Both she and Taqqaugaq were happy because that day they had got their child tax benefit and they'd be able to buy groceries.
