Police watchdog is investigating an incident in which a man was tasered and shot with bean-bag shotgun rounds.
Vancouver Police say a citizen called 9-1-1 around 4 pm this Thursday after seeing a man behaving erratically and waving what appeared to be a knife near Kingsway and Victoria Drive. The suspect was allegedly threatening to stab and kill police.
Police officers located a suspect nearby, and used a taser and bean-bag shotgun rounds during the arrest. No police or members of the public were injured.
The suspect was taken to hospital where, after a few hours, additional examination discovered a serious medical condition.
The Independent Investigations Office is now investigating, and no additional information is available at this time.
