The tent encampment set up by Civic Centre Park was set to be torn down but has since been postponed by the City of Lethbridge. As BCN’s Micah Quinn explains, the decision to delay the tear down follows a shooting on Sunday night at the encampment.
The Lethbridge Police Service have charged a 37-year-old Lethbridge man in connection with a shooting at one of our city’s tent encampment sites. Nathan Parker Spearchief faces a variety of charges including aggravated assault, assault with a weapon and discharge of a firearm with the intent to endanger life. A 33 year-old-man was shot in the leg. He was taken to hospital, treated and has since been released. Spearchief remains in custody awaiting his bail hearing.
