Mountie testifies he was shot several times trying to protect another officer

WESTASKIWIN, Alta. — A Mountie has testified he was shot several times while trying to protect his partner from a naked man with a gun.

Const. Sheldon Shah and another officer were shot and wounded in 2012 while executing a search warrant at a farm near Killam, southeast of Edmonton.

Shah identified the shooter as Bradford Clarke, the uncle of Sawyer Robison (SOY’-yuhr ROH’-bih-son), who had also been in the home.

Clarke was found dead in the house after a standoff and Robison was arrested.

Robison, who is 30, has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder, assault causing bodily harm and weapons-related offences.

Shah told court he lives with pain everyday as a result of his injuries, which included losing a testicle.
