Less than a week after a Manitoba RCMP officer was shot during a break-and-enter call, all four suspects have appeared in court. For most of them, it was far from their first time inside a courtroom.
The accused shooter, 18-year-old Therae Racette-Beaulieu of Sandy Bay First Nation, has no adult record. Manitoba courts do not make youth conviction records publicly accessible. Racette-Beaulieu has been accused of pulling the trigger in the shooting that injured RCMP Cpl. Graeme Kingdon last Wednesday, and he faces two counts of attempted murder as well as five other criminal charges.
The three other suspects all have criminal records. At the time of the shooting, 21-year-old Tommy Edward Beaulieu was already facing other gun-related charges for alleged violence, including assault with a weapon and causing bodily harm with intent using a firearm on July 15.
