  • Inquest To Be Held 3 Years After Burnaby Stabbing Suspect Travis Rood Shot By Police
BURNABY, B.C. — The BC Coroners Service has scheduled an inquest to examine the police-involved death of a 35-year-old man from Burnaby.
 
Travis Rood was shot on March 29, 2015, when RCMP responded to reports of a double stabbing in a home in the Vancouver-area city.
 
He was rushed to hospital but died a short time later.
 
A second man was found in the home suffering from fatal stab wounds.
 
The Independent Investigations Office, which investigates police-involved death or serious injury, has not yet issued its final report.
 
A news release from the coroners' service says an inquest into Rood's death will begin on Jan. 8, and a jury will have the opportunity to make recommendations aimed at preventing similar deaths.
