At the time of the incident, police said they were initially called to a report of a domestic incident at a North Shore home, where Caron allegedly threatened to shoot police.

A man emerged from the home armed with a rifle and fled in a truck. Caron is accused of opening fire on police on multiple occasions during the subsequent pursuit, which took place on the North Shore and through the Tk’emlups reserve.

Court records show Caron is scheduled to be sentenced on Nov. 1, but he has not yet entered guilty pleas.

Following his arrest, Caron was facing numerous charges, including four counts of attempted murder.
