    No charges in tragic shootings involving Montreal police

    MONTREAL—There will be no charges laid against police who shot and killed two people in Montreal last year, including an innocent bystander on his way to work.

    A statement from the province’s Director of Penal and Criminal Prosecutions about the June 2011 tragedy said there were no grounds for charges.
    “No criminal infraction was committed by officers with the Montreal Police Service,” said the statement issued Thursday.

    That assessment was based on an investigation by provincial police — who reviewed the work of the Montreal police officers involved in the shootings.

    The incident earned national attention, triggered an angry anti-police march, and prompted calls for procedural changes at Quebec’s police forces.

    Officers shot a homeless man, Mario Hamel, during a public disturbance. Their gunfire also struck Patrick Limoges, who happened to be walking by on his way to work at a nearby hospital.
