Officer, former cop charged in gun incident

A police officer and a former officer have been charged after a gun was fired inside the Springfield Police Service office last year.

The Independent Investigation Unit of Manitoba said investigators found reasonable grounds to believe criminal offences had occurred. 
Const. Jesse Zillman and Tyler Froese, a former officer with the police service, have each been issued a summons to appear in Beausejour provincial court on Dec. 6 on charges of careless use of a firearm and obstruction of justice.

No one was injured when the gun was fired.

The incident involving an on-duty officer happened on Feb. 14, 2021, but the IIU was not told about it until April 28, 2022 — more than a year later. The IIU announced it was investigating the incident on May 2 of this year.

Brown and the teen were known to each other, RCMP said today. The boy remains in custody.
