Cop shoots unarmed man

Gatineau man unarmed when officers opened fire from just four feet away, family says

By KENNETH JACKSON, SUN MEDIA
The Ottawa Sun


A Gatineau police officer shot an unarmed man three times, killing him in broad daylight yesterday.

According to the victim's family, the police officer beat David LeClair, 35, with his billy club, pepper sprayed him and then shot him from four feet away.

Gatineau police referred calls to the Surete du Quebec, who were saying little yesterday. They did confirm they are investigating the officer's conduct and will forward the file to the Crown's office.

But the family provided a much more detailed description of the incident.

They said not only did the officer shoot an unarmed LeClair, the officer also pointed his gun at the man's elderly mother.

It all started when one officer arrived at the 16 Conroy St. home shortly after 11 a.m. He said he was there to arrest LeClair for an assault on his on-off-again girlfriend.


Earlier, LeClair had called it a day after rain ruined a good day's work of roofing. He was standing in his driveway wearing jogging pants, knee pads, and his work boots. He didn't have a shirt on and told the officer he'd go inside the house to get one, said the victim's brother, Robert LeClair.


MOM INTERVENED

David LeClair was walking into the home he shared with his 73-year-old mother when the officer went in after him, said the family. Robert LeClair says he followed and watched as the cop beat his brother with his club and pepper-sprayed him three times in the face.

His mother stepped in to try to stop the beating happening in her living room when she was hit in the knee with the officer's club, said the brother.

"He put a gun to her head and said you're going to get it next. He was screaming at the top of his lungs," said Robert LeClair.

That's when he told the officer to calm down and to let his brother get a shirt on.

"Get out of my house now," screamed the mother to which they say the officer replied "f--- you."

When David LeClair went outside, he went up to his truck and rested his arm on the side.

The family says the officer pointed his gun at him and said to get on the ground "or I'll f---ing shoot."

"He said it three times before David turned to walk away and that's when he started shooting," said the brother.

"Pow, pow, pow," said Robert LeClair's wife Vicky Hunter, who also witnessed the shooting.

He was shot in both sides of his stomach and left forearm.

It was then complete hysteria. Everyone was yelling and David was on the ground moaning in pain.

He turned to his sister and said, "Donna, I'm dying."

Within 20 minutes, several officers arrived on the scene with paramedics arriving 10 minues later.


DIED AT HOSPITAL

They took LeClair to hospital where he remained on life support until he died at approximately 7 p.m.

Before his death, about 20 friends and family took turns visiting him in the intensive care unit. A priest administered last rites around 3:30 p.m.

At the hospital, the family's anger was clearly evident as they spoke about what they saw.

They say David was acting nonchalantly with the officer because he considered the arrest bogus and couldn't believe what was happening.

A couple of days ago, the victim called police on his girlfriend, saying she was harassing him with phone calls at his home at all hours of the night.

"We always told him to get rid of her," said a family member.

They'd been together several months and at one time were thinking of getting married, but the relationship was falling apart.

The family said David had some run-ins with police over the years, but was a good guy.

"He's a joker. If he was standing here right now, you'd be laughing and think he's the best guy you ever met," said Robert LeClair a couple of hours before his brother died.

LeClair leaves behind a nine-year-old daughter.

The Surete du Quebec has taken over the investigation, a common practice in Quebec when municipal police are involved in a shooting death.

Robert LeClair told CTV Ottawa that it was his brother David who was shot by police Saturday morning. LeClair said police showed up at his brother's door, allegedly to investigate a complaint filed by David's girlfriend. "He said, 'You're under arrest now.' He took out his pepper spray, sprayed, and then took out his black stick, hitting him with it in the house," said LeClair.

LeClair said the officer then led David outside and told him to lie on the ground. When David refused, the officer took out his gun and threatened to shoot him.

When David still refused, LeClair said the officer shot his brother three times in the side.
Another family member places the shooting back inside the house.
"My brother-in-law was on the floor, shot three times. The cop was still there, he had the gun in his holster but his hand was on it, he didn't want to let it go," said Robert Pombert, the alleged victim's brother-in-law.
Yeah... I bet that's exactly how it happened... both times.

**********

UPDATE: The story just keeps getting better

Apparently, the cop who murdered sonny... also clubbed 73 year-old mom... who was, strangely enough, looking pretty hearty and unbruised during her subsequent tv interviews.
Mrs. Leclair, 73, said police had searched the home in the past -- although she referred to it as "harassment."

At least two officers "USUALLY SHOWED UP AT THE HOUSE" to calm Mr. Leclair down and defuse the situation if necessary, his family said.
Mr. LeClair was, as they say... "known to police."

**********

UPDATE2: It just continues to get better & better

Apparently Officer Mad Max wasn't content to just club Mom...
“He put a gun to her head and said you’re going to get it next. He was screaming at the top of his lungs,” said Robert LeClair.
I guess Mommy Dearest was just too traumatized to mention that herself... in the CTV interview last night.

Good thing the media mentioned David LeClair was a roofer... I was beginning to think this guy was a Buddhist monk.

**********

WELCOME, YET AGAIN, READERS OF CANADIAN CYNIC

So what kind of dumbstick actually falls for an over the top media feeding frenzy like we have here?

Hey, CC... how you doing with those monsters under your bed?

That's what's really hilarious.

BOO!

**********

UPDATE3: The Ottawa Citizen is now reporting...

Mr. LeClair's sister-in-law apparently snapped pictures of him as he lay there dying.

Two questions come to mind.

How many people actually live in this house... and what kind of freak... instead of summoning help, or offering first-aid... takes pictures of a family member who is lying on the ground bleeding to death?

**********

LAST WORD: Family now blaming cops...

...for not having tasers...
David LeClair would be alive today if the Gatineau cop who shot him had a stun gun, the victim's sister-in-law charged yesterday.
