Manitoba watchdog clears 2 First Nations police force officers in fatal Long Plain shooting


The Independent Investigation Unit is clearing a pair of Manitoba First Nations Police Service officers of wrongdoing in the shooting death of Ben Richard, 23, on Long Plain First Nation last spring.

The civilian director of the IIU, Zane Tessler, concluded that the use of lethal force by the two MFNP officers was "justified, unavoidable and necessary" to prevent any further death or injury to the public.
