FAIRVIEW, A.B. – Fairview RCMP are searching for a suspect after an altercation Tuesday afternoon.

The RCMP responded to a motor vehicle collision near Fairview. When officers arrived on scene an altercation occurred between police and the lone male occupant of the vehicle. During the altercation the police officer discharged his firearm.

The male left the scene in an unmarked police vehicle. The vehicle has since been recovered and the RCMP believe the suspect stole another vehicle. The second vehicle was recovered in the area of Dawson Creek, but the suspect remains on the run.

Peace River General Investigations Section is investigating the male’s suspected criminal actions. The Director of Law Enforcement has decided the RCMP Major Crime Unit North will investigate the police officer’s actions. Following that investigation ASIRT will review the police investigation. There is no indication that the male was injured during the altercation at this time.

If you have any information about the person who fled from the police please contact the Fairview RCMP at 780-835-4031 or if you wish to remain anonymous you can call Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), by internet at
