On July 24, 2022 at 10:14 p.m., Stettler RCMP were dispatched to a report of a disturbance involving several people in front of a residence in Stettler. While the officers were patrolling in the area, they were flagged down by a female who reported she had allegedly been threatened by an adult male with a weapon. 

The male was located by officers in a nearby alley. An interaction occurred wherein one officer discharged their service weapon and another discharged a conducted energy weapon. First aid was administered by RCMP officers on scene. Emergency Medical Services attended to provide assistance and the suspect was transported by STARS Air Ambulance to an Edmonton area hospital where he remains in stable condition.

Stettler RCMP contained the area with assistance from Three Hills and Bashaw RCMP. The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT) has taken over carriage of the investigation into the circumstances of the officer involved shooting.
