Minister Denis statement on shooting in St. Paul.


Jonathan Denis, Minister of Justice and Solicitor General, issued this statement in response to the shooting in St. Paul.

“Today, I had the honour of attending events with RCMP officers where I spoke about the sacrifices made by law enforcement personnel across our province. Each and every day, when they leave for work, they don’t know dangers they may face, including if they will come home at the end of their shift.

The terrible events this evening in St. Paul are a reminder of the very real dangers faced by law enforcement, as they put themselves at risk in the line of duty to protect and serve Albertans.

I am also grateful to the many personnel who responded on scene, for their assistance.

On behalf of Premier Hancock and all Albertans, I extend my thoughts and prayers to everyone and their families affected by this serious incident.”

Note: Media inquiries about the incident should be directed to the RCMP. The incident is being investigated by the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT).
