A public inquest has been set into the death of a man who was shot and killed by Prince Albert police last summer.
Police fatally shot Ryan Natomagan-Nelson, 26, during an altercation that took place on the evening of July 9, 2013.
The inquest has been scheduled for Sept. 8-12, 2014 at the Prince Albert Travelodge. Proceedings on the first day will begin at 10 a.m.
According to the Coroner’s Act, the Chief Coroner may direct that an inquest be held into the death of any person.
Besides establishing who died, when, and where, as well as the medical cause and manner of death, the coroner’s jury can also make recommendations to prevent similar fatalities in the future.
Coroner Brent Gough of Saskatoon will preside over the inquest.
