Li­censed elec­tri­cian and YTEPP lec­tur­er Al­lis­ter Pierre was yes­ter­day fa­tal­ly shot in the neck dur­ing a po­lice-in­volved shoot­ing in which two of­fi­cers were al­so in­jured, with one suf­fer­ing a bro­ken arm. The tragedy hap­pened af­ter the of­fi­cers went to Pierre’s Brazil Vil­lage, San Raphael home to ar­rest him on an out­stand­ing do­mes­tic abuse war­rant.

Pierre was the third po­lice shoot­ing vic­tim in four days and the sixth for the year so far.

Ac­cord­ing to a po­lice re­port, at about 2.50 am yes­ter­day North­ern Di­vi­sion of­fi­cers shot Pierre when he re­port­ed­ly at­tacked two of them as they re­spond­ed to a re­port of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence at a house at Brazilome Branch Trace. He was lat­er tak­en to the Ari­ma Dis­trict Hos­pi­tal where he died while un­der­go­ing treat­ment. The po­lice re­port said one of the of­fi­cers sus­tained a bro­ken arm while his col­league sus­tained oth­er in­juries.

Po­lice said they were ex­e­cut­ing a war­rant for his Pierre’s ar­rest when they were at­tacked. They had a war­rant out for Pierre for ma­li­cious wound­ing and added that he was known to them hav­ing had a string of of­fences to his name, in­clud­ing lar­ce­ny, rob­bery, sex­u­al of­fences and drug pos­ses­sion.
