Friends of the man who died in a confrontation with Edmonton police Saturday night–have identified him as Matt Dumas.
He was originally from Drayton Valley—–and a woman who knew him in high school–says he had changed after his twin Mitch—had committed suicide six years ago.
Police say they had been trying to arrest a suspect on outstanding warrants in the Westmount Mall parking lot—they had boxed him in—but he apparently used his vehicle as a battering ram to get away–and when that didnt work—-there was a confrontation—and the suspect was shot to death.
Police say they recovered a handgun…..
ASIRT is still investigating.
