The man died after the police had lit a police in the house near the Mill Mill on Saturday.
Shawnigan Lake RCMP Officers went to a blockhouse of 1100 Mill Bay Road, in Cedar Creek Mobile Home Park, to arrest a man as part of an investigation into the attack, said CHEK News.
Police officers entered the house shortly after noon, and one man came to them with "weapons". They responded by trying to put the rifle in an unsuccessful attempt to stop a man, the RCMP said. The cops fired the bullet and the man was hit. He was taken to a hospital where he died of injuries.
No one else was hurt.
An independent investigation office was invited to investigate. The provincial agency has a task to inspect the deaths and injuries involving the police.
Neighbors have told CHEK News that they have heard several shootings. Shortly thereafter, the person was taken out of the house on the carrier.
