Shawn Maxwell Rehn identified as man suspected of shooting two Mounties at St. Albert casino

The man suspected of shooting two Mounties in St. Albert Saturday morning has been identified by RCMP.

Shawn Maxwell Rehn, 34, was found dead in a private home hours after Const. David Matthew Wynn and auxiliary Const. Derek Bond were shot inside the Apex Casino in St Albert.

Wynn, 42, was last reported to be in grave condition, while Bond, 49, was released from hospital Saturday evening.

Police spent hours hunting for Rehn and cornered him in a home in Sturgeon County before finding him dead inside. Rehn had broken into the unoccupied house after fleeing the nearby casino.

An autopsy to determine how he died will be performed on Monday. Rehn’s family has been notified.

Rehn, who was from the greater Edmonton area, according to RCMP, was known to police.

In January 2005, Edmonton police issued an arrest warrant for Rehn after a man armed with a pistol allegedly forced his way into a home, saying he was owed money and forcing a 22-year-old man to drive to a bank to withdraw cash. The suspect allegedly left personal identification in the victim’s car.

In March 2003, a man described in the Journal as Shawn Rehn, then 22, was charged in connection with the theft of $150,000 worth of hockey memorabilia from a home in north Edmonton.

Wynn, 42, continues to fight for his life in hospital. He was a former paramedic in Nova Scotia and is a “treasured” St. Albert elementary school resource officer.

Counsellors will be at Keenooshayo Elementary School on Monday to offer support to students who know him.
