Police in northeastern New Brunswick fatally shot a 26-year-old Indigenous woman Thursday after being called to perform a “wellness check.” Chantel Moore’s family identified her as the woman killed by police in Edmundston, N.B. Moore was from B.C.’s Tlaoquiaht First Nation but had recently moved to there to be closer to her five-year-old daughter, CTV News reported. Edmundston police said in a statement the officer who responded to the call was allegedly confronted by a woman with a knife making threats. The officer shot the woman and she died at the scene despite attempts to resuscitate her.
