‘None of this makes any sense,’ says wife of man shot by Duncan RCMP
Sarah Annie Brown is scared to answer her phone.
Her husband, Davin Cochrane, father of their newborn baby girl, is lying in a dark room at Victoria General Hospital in an induced coma. A big chunk of his brain was removed, she said, after he was shot twice in the head by an RCMP officer on the evening of March 28.
For some inexplicable reason, Cochrane was driving a track loader skid-steer along residential streets in Duncan and refused to stop for police. A neighbourhood listened in disbelief as gunshots rang out from Evans Park, followed by the sirens of an ambulance racing Cochrane to hospital.
“I’m a wreck. I can’t handle any bad news right now,” a fragile Brown said Friday morning after a hectic drive from Ladysmith with 11-year-old Preston, six-year-old Willow, and three-month-old Mylah. “His brain pressure is up and down. The CT scan was good. It showed lots of blood flow, but they’re not going to wake him anytime soon.”
