    " The officer was able to share vital information with investigators before he was taken by ambulance.

    “He was able to relay information that was very helpful in the initial stages of our investigation,” Meuller said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with our colleague, his wife, his two young children, and the rest of his family.”

    He confirmed the officer was wearing a bulletproof vest at the time of the shooting. It is unclear how many times he was shot.

    Police are warning the public that the suspect or suspects in the vehicle are considered armed and dangerous, and should not be approached.

    Mounties say they’re looking for a 1998-model, white, four-door Chrysler Intrepid with B.C. license plate AF7 65A. Anyone who sees it is asked to call police immediately."

    "VICTORIA – A 36-year-old man who is known to police has been arrested by members of an emergency-response team in Kamloops, B.C., just hours after an RCMP officer was shot and critically wounded.

    RCMP Supt. Brad Mueller said Wednesday that police helicopters and dogs were also involved in the search for the suspect who allegedly shot Cpl. Jean Michaud earlier in the day in the city located in the province’s Interior."

    From March 2016:


    A man who shot a Mountie at a traffic stop in 2014 has been sentenced to 16 1/2 years in prison for what the judge called a heinous crime.

    Kenneth Knutson, 38, pleaded guilty to attempted murder earlier on Thursday before joint submissions for the sentence from Crown and defence lawyers...

    Cpl. Michaud endured 12 surgeries and spent 112 days in hospital before returning to full-time duties in January. He had worked part-time on administrative duties before returning to his regular job.
