The BC Coroner’s Service has finally named the Guy Fawkes-masked protester who was shot Thursday night by an RCMP officer outside the Fixx Urban Grill in Dawson Creek, BC.

He was James Daniel McIntyre. He was 48 years old, and had worked as a cook’s assistant and dishwasher at Le’s Family Restaurant for the last four years. Management there described him as “a hard worker.” His family lives in the town.

The Coroner’s statement:

The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a man who died following an interaction with police in Dawson Creek on July 16, 2015.

The man is James Daniel McIntyre, aged 48, a resident of Dawson Creek.

Mr. McIntyre was shot during an encounter with Dawson Creek RCMP which occurred about 7:20 p.m. on July 16, in the parking lot of the Fixx Urban Grill restaurant in Dawson Creek. Mr. McIntyre was transported immediately to hospital in Dawson Creek, but died there shortly after arrival.

The BC Coroners Service and the Independent Investigations Office (IIO) continue to investigate this death.

Anonymous members said over the weekend that McIntyre was a member of a First Nations cell of Anonymous who was wearing a Guy Fawkes mask.

Contrary to initial rumours, McIntyre does not appear to have been First Nations.
