Media twist the truth

NANAIMO, B.C — The fatal shooting of a 48-year-old man by police outside a Selby Street apartment Friday morning came as little surprise to some neighbourhood residents.

The 6 a.m. police response to a noise complaint at the property was not an unusual occurrence according to neighbours, some of whom reported hearing multiple gunshots. Drug-related problems are common in the area, they said.

Nanaimo RCMP officials turned over the shooting investigation to the Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit and said they have previously visited the building for disturbance and noise complaints.
