Montreal cops concerned in a taking pictures of an armed man 4 years in the past will face no prison fees, Quebec’s workplace of prison prosecutions has determined.

Lindel Darling, 28, of Vaudreuil-Dorion, was shot within the head and survived.

Through the early hours of Dec. 31, 2016, three calls had been made to 911 to report a combat inside a membership on Ste-Catherine St. E. One lady reported photographs had been fired.

4 cops responded, and one noticed a person strolling away from the membership together with his hand lowered to his belt, in keeping with a abstract launched Thursday by the Directeur des poursuites criminelles et pénales (DPCP).

The officer noticed what seemed to be a gun tucked into the person’s pants.

The armed man headed towards St-Dominique St., and the primary officer radioed different police within the space.

When a police cruiser with two officers arrived at De Bullion St., they noticed a person operating together with his hand clutching his belt and pursued him.
