Quebec coroner to hold public inquiry into 2018 police killing of Lac-Brome teen

There will be a public coroners’ inquest into the death of a 17-year-old who was fatally shot by Quebec provincial police nearly three years ago

Riley Fairholm was fatally shot by the Sûreté du Québec (SQ) in July of 2018, and his mother has been searching for answers ever since.

“It’s like I’m always in limbo,” she told Global News.

For almost three years now, Wing has felt stuck in the worst night of her life.

On July 25, 2018, Fairholm was in a mental health crisis, waving an air gun and pacing in the street in Lac-Brome. After a 911 call, the SQ arrived. Sixty seconds later, one of the officers shot him in the head.
