Man shot by police in Salmon Arm to enter pleas this month

January 13, 2018 - 11:00 AM

KAMLOOPS - A man who was shot by police in the Shuswap last year is expected to plead guilty to some charges and stand trial on others.

Crown and defence lawyers met in Kamloops Provincial Court yesterday, Jan. 12, where they told Provincial Court Judge Stella Frame that the Independent Investigations Office had completed a report regarding the shooting incident — the last hurdle before setting a trial date.

The details of the report have not been made public, but last January police and the Independent Investigations Office said a shooting incident occurred in Salmon Arm after an alleged robbery at a local car wash.

Kaymen Winter was shot in the head, and he spent months recovering in hospital before being released and taken into pre-trial custody at Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre.

He's facing several charges in connection to that incident, on top of many outstanding charges from jurisdictions in the Lower Mainland and on Vancouver Island. Family previously told iNFOnews.ca that Winter had been on his way to deal with those outstanding charges when the incident in Salmon Arm happened.

Defence lawyer Matt Ford told the court that Winter is expected to plead guilty to some charges and stand trial on others, though it's not clear what charges will proceed to trial.

Winter's next appearance is scheduled for arraignment, where he's expected to enter pleas on the charges. That appearance is scheduled for Jan. 25.
