A judge has found a man accused of shooting two RCMP officers in rural Alberta not guilty of all charges. Sawyer Robison (ROH'-bih-suhn) was facing attempted murder, assault causing bodily harm and weapons-related charges. Constables Sheldon Shah and Sidney Gaudette were wounded while trying to search a farmhouse near Killam, southeast of Edmonton, in February 2012. Reporter Bob Weber (WEBB-ER) explains why the judge ruled as he did. (Robison's defence lawyer has argued that it was Robison's uncle who shot the officers before killing himself.)
