An RCMP officer is facing multiple lawsuits following the shooting death of a Thompsonite two years ago.
Constable Abram Letkeman, who was charged with manslaughter, criminal negligence, reckless discharge of a firearm and dangerous driving, is being sued by Steven Campbell’s mother and girlfriend.
Lori Flett, the mother of Campbell’s youngest child, is not only suing Letkeman, but also the RCMP and attorney general for damages related to injuries she sustained, as some of the shots fired at the car hit her.
Campbell’s mother, Shirley Huber, filed a claim against the RCMP, the attorney general and Letkeman saying that they owe her money for general damages, loss of companionship, funeral expenses, and interest.

Both lawsuits allege Letkeman’s actions while on duty mean the RCMP and the attorney general are both liable for what happened that night.
A trial date for Constable Letkeman has not yet been scheduled.
