The BC Coroners’ Service has identified the man who died after an incident involving Mounties in Agassiz.
He was 88 year old Rene Armand Vaugeois.
Vaugeois was living in an independent-living seniors residence in Agassiz.
Just after 7:00 AM on September 23rd, Vaugeois was involved in an encounter with Agassiz RCMP.
He then went into medical distress and died at the scene.
