A Delta Police officer has been charged with careless use of a firearm in connection with an incident in Surrey in November 2013.
Const. Vicken Movsessian was charged Wednesday and is scheduled to appear in Surrey Provincial Court April 27.
The charge approval comes after an investigation by the Independent Investigations Office of B.C. (IIO), which probes all police officer-related incidents that result in death or serious harm.
In this case, police were dealing with the occupants of a car near 108 Avenue and 148 Street on Nov. 7, 2013.
“It is alleged that in the course of the incident a firearm was discharged, resulting in injury to the male occupant of the vehicle,” says a press release from the B.C. Criminal Justice Branch.
