A 37-year-old man in Red Deer is dead after an officer related shooting on Christmas day.
The confrontation took place around 2p.m. Friday in an industrial park, after the suspect collided with multiple unoccupied vehicles, including a police cruiser, using a stolen front-end loader.
He was then chased by police to a field near Range Road 273 and Township Road 39, where he was shot and killed by an officer.
The man was wanted in connection with a sexual assault of a 47-year-old woman and the attempted murder of a 20-year-old man.
Police say the victims have received medical attention, and that they knew the suspect.
The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team will now investigate into the shooting, while RCMP look into the earlier assault and attempted murder.
RCMP will not be releasing the name of the deceased.
