FORT ST. JOHN -- The Independent Investigations Office of B.C. has released new details into the investigation of police-involved incident at a hotel in Fort St. John.

The occurrence took place at around 5:20 a.m. at the Super 8 by Wyndham Hotels in the 9500 Block of West Alaska Road.

Initial reports from Fort St. John RCMP said a disturbance had taken place, and the case was being handed over to the IIO for investigation.

In a bulletin released March 21st, the intial investigation is revealing that officers arrived on scene, spoke to a man at the hotel, and then left without incident.

Mounties were then called back to the hotel at around 6:15 a.m. where they found the man suffering from what appeared to be self-inflicted injuries.

The man was transported to hospital and the IIO was called, who are looking to determine whether the man’s injuries meet the threshold of serious harm, and what role police may have played in the interaction.

The investigation office is asking any witnesses who may have seen the man’s interaction with police come forward with information by calling the IIO Witness Line at 1-855-446-8477 or sumbit a contact form via their website

CJDC TV went to the hotel, but were told by staff that they would not comment as the case is still under investigation.

The IIO is an independent oversight agency of police in British Columbia, who are called to investigate matters of officer-related incidents that result in serious harm, death, or allegations of wrongdoing.
