Groups claiming to be affiliated with activists Anonymous claim victim was ‘Anon comrade’
DAWSON CREEK — The Independent Investigations Office of B.C. says a man shot in Dawson Creek on Thursday had his face covered, but has not yet confirmed that he was wearing a Guy Fawkes mask, used by Anonymous, a loosely associated international network of activist and hacktivist entities.
That’s despite a growing number of online reports and social media chatter linking the victim to the group. The IIO began investigating the shooting early Friday and later that day a video emerged showing police shooting the man.
