A man charged in the 2018 shooting of an RCMP officer near Onanole has died in custody.

Tommy Beaulieu was serving a sentence at Stony Mountain Institution at the time of his death.

There have been no details from Corrections Canada about how Beaulieu died, but there will be a review of the circumstances around his death.

Beaulieu pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer, among other charges, and was one of four men arrested after RCMP corporal Graeme Kingdon was shot while responding to a break and enter in Onanole in August 2018.
