Lee Christopher Monrose, 29, charged with attempted murder of police officers

Charges have been laid in an incident that resulted in two Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT) officers being injured while conducting an interview inside the Calgary ASIRT office Tuesday morning.

Lee Christopher Monrose, 29, has been charged with 11 criminal offences: attempted murder, assault causing bodily harm, assault with a weapon, assaulting a peace officer (x3), aggravated assault, carrying a concealed weapon, possession of a weapon dangerous to the public, resisting arrest, and breach of recognizance.

His next court appearance is scheduled for June 4 in Calgary. He remains in custody.

Background:

The Alberta Director of Law Enforcement directed the Edmonton Police Service to conduct an investigation into an incident that occurred inside the Calgary ASIRT office shortly after 10 a.m. on Tuesday, June 1. Two investigators from the Edmonton Police Service Homicide Section responded to Calgary to lead the investigation. Investigations revealed that on Tuesday, a 29-year-old male had attended the ASIRT office unannounced as an involved person in an ongoing ASIRT investigation. While an ASIRT investigator was with the male in an interview room, it is alleged that the male produced a weapon and stabbed the investigator, an RCMP sergeant seconded to ASIRT, resulting in serious injuries. Upon hearing the commotion, other investigators intervened to bring the suspect under control, resulting in a seconded Calgary Police Service sergeant receiving a minor injury. The male accused was also taken to hospital for treatment of minor injuries and was released into police custody.
