Date: October 17, 2001 Calgary Cop Shot Dead In Training Exercise A police officer in Calgary was killed after being shot in the head during a tactical training exercise. No one knows how a live round was discharged which hit the officer. The police claim that they always use blanks in the guns. He was a married man with no children. The officer who fired the gun and killed the other officer is receiving counselling after this accident.

This is an example of tort law because it was an act of violence against another person. If they convicted another officer of the death it would also be criminal law because the person would have committed murder.
