The province’s authorities guard dog has actually opened an examination after two guys thought of child abduction were hurt earlier today while RCMP tried to recuperate the victims.

The Independent Examination System of Manitoba said in a press release on Wednesday RCMP utilized a “less lethal” gun to subdue the suspects, resulting in minor injuries throughout the run-in south of Winnipeg.

At around 10: 45 a.m. on Monday, Steinbach RCMP got a call about an adult kid abduction. They located the suspects at a home in Roseau River, where officers were assaulted in their effort to recover the kids.

Police responded by discharging a “less deadly” gun, according to the release.

The IIU did not respond when asked what a “less lethal” firearm indicates.

According to the Police Solutions Act and policies, any harm resulting from the usage of a firearm is considered a serious injury, the release stated. The IIU examines all major incidents involving authorities in Manitoba.
