"REM" 2007 Obituary


REMIAN 2007-12-03 published
Police pleaded with slain man to drop weapon
Three Halton officers are the focus of an Special Investigations Unit probe of the shooting in Oakville.
By Rob LAMBERTI, Sun Media, Mon., December 3, 2007
Toronto -- The armed man who was killed in a confrontation with Halton police had recently returned to Oakville from British Columbia after losing or leaving his job.
Steve REMIAN, 38, died after being shot several times by three officers, two of them tactical unit members, at 2: 33 a.m. Saturday in Wedgewood Park in the town's posh east end.
One of those bullets is believed to have hit REMIAN in the head.
REMIAN had moved to British Columbia to work and recently returned to Oakville, where he lived previously and has family.
Special Investigations Unit spokesperson Rose Bliss said an autopsy was performed yesterday and some results may be revealed today.
She said Royal Canadian Mounted Police in British Columbia are trying to dig up background on the man.
Bliss said four officers were initially designated as subject officers, meaning that they had shot at REMIAN, but evidence suggests there were three officers.
Their actions are under scrutiny by the Special Investigations Unit. There are 13 designated as witness officers, she said.
Police began looking for REMIAN and his auto after receiving a call from a person at a Tim Hortons an hour before the fatal shots.
Bliss said the man was acting strangely and threatened to harm himself and others.
The caller had also seen the man's rifle, she said.
By the time officers arrived at the coffee shop, REMIAN had left the scene, but another patrolling cruiser spotted his car a short time later.
With flashing lights, police followed the car into the park, where the man drove until he got wedged in bush and woods.
REMIAN apparently made no effort to lose police during the short drive from when he was spotted and when he was cornered in the park.
Despite numerous pleas to drop the rifle, REMIAN apparently lifted the firearm and police opened fire.
Bliss said it's not known if REMIAN opened fire at police.
The man's apparent state of mind raises the question that he may have tried to provoke police into a confrontation, a phenomenon known as suicide by cop. Bliss didn't say if investigators have any evidence of it in this case.
But a source said the man was visibly upset and had been openly talking about harming himself and others.
