  2. Quebec’s chief coroner has ordered an inquest into the death of a teen who was shot and killed by a provincial police officer in 2015 after a chase in Messines near Maniwaki.

    The order by Chief Coroner Catherine Rudel-Tessier was announced Friday.

    Brandon Maurice, 17, was shot on Nov. 16, 2015 after a pursuit involving a Sûreté du Québec officer.

    At the time of Maurice’s death, a spokesman for Montreal police, who took over the inquiry, said that a suspect vehicle had stopped and the SQ officer had approached the driver.

    The driver accelerated away, dragging the officer who fired his weapon in the driver’s direction.

    Maurice died in hospital. The SQ officer was also taken to hospital for treatment of shock.

    A passenger in Maurice’s car was not hit by the gunfire.

    Montreal police completed their investigation last June, saying no criminal charges would be laid.

    His mother, Dominique Bernier, said that his family suspects the officer used excessive force and complained that investigations of deaths involving police can’t be impartial when police officers are investigating other police officers.

    “Police officers protect each other,” Bernier said in a 2016 interview with the Montreal Gazette.

    The inquest will be overseen by Luc Malouin, the deputy chief coroner, and will take place in the Outaouais this fall. It will hear from witnesses about the events and circumstances leading to Maurice’s death.

    The coroner may make recommendations to prevent similar deaths from happening again.
