The Kamloops RCMP have arrested wanted man Michael Shawn Boyer.
Boyer, 41, was wanted in connection to an altercation that took place Saturday night at the Tournament Inn in Valleyview.
Police allege Boyer produced a handgun, pointed it at the officer and made threats to shoot the officer. The officer then fired his pistol at the suspect.
This may have a lot to do with an appeal from his mother, Darlene Boyer.
Sunday morning on Facebook she noted her “worst nightmare” had occurred.
“My son is on the Kamloops news wanted and at large considered dangerous,” she wrote. “I sit here praying that he gives himself up. He had 9 years clean and went back out to this frightening addiction and lifestyle. There is nothing I can do but wait which is making me physically sick. If anyone sees him or heard from him please please please tell him to surrender.”
Boyer goes on to say that she loves him adding “this isn’t the way I thought your life would end…Mike if you see this surrender yourself peacefully.”
Cpl. Jodi Shelkie says he was arrested without incident. No other information is available at this time.
