Call for groups to speak at Lance Muir inquest
The province is calling for applicants to participate in a standing inquest next month looking into the death of Lance Muir.
In May 2010, police were called to a residence on Langside in Winnipeg and found Muir behind the house.
After a confrontation, Muir was shot. He was transported to Health Sciences Centre where he was later pronounced dead.
An autopsy determined the cause of death was a gunshot wound to his chest.
Muir was a tattoo artist known to police as a former member of the Spartans biker gang.
Inquests provide a way to examine complex cases and recommend how similar situations can be better handled in the future.
Individuals and groups can apply to speak at the inquest and a judge will approve or deny their request for standing.
