The Independent Investigations Office has filed a legal petition against Vancouver Police Chief Adam Palmer and seven officers, arguing they aren't cooperating with the investigation into the fatal shooting of a man outside a Canadian Tire last year.

Daniel Peter Rintoul was killed by police on Nov. 10, 2016, after holding an 82-year-old Canadian Tire customer hostage at knifepoint during an attempted robbery.

Rintoul subsequently stabbed a store employee and a police officer, said Palmer at a news conference the day after the shooting.

"We tried to use the least amount of force possible to take him into custody, and when that was not possible, lethal force was used."
