Winnipeg police officer no longer with force after allegedly threatening female co-worker
15-year police veteran Leroy Gold charged with 2 counts of pointing a gun, verbal threats
A Winnipeg police officer accused of threatening and pointing a shotgun at a fellow officer on two separate occasions is no longer employed by the Winnipeg Police Service, according to a spokesperson.
It's unclear whether Leroy Gold, 41, resigned or was fired by the force. Winnipeg police declined to provide that information, saying it was a personnel matter.
The first alleged instance of pointing a firearm and threatening to kill or harm the female officer took place sometime between May 6 and May 9, 2016, according to court documents. The second incident, also involving threats and pointing a shotgun, allegedly took place Nov. 3, 2016.
The officers were on duty during both alleged incidents, the police service said in July.
A spokesperson for Winnipeg police said Gold's employment with Winnipeg Police ended Nov. 30. He was with the service for 15 years.
Following the charges in July, Gold was released on a promise to appear and was also ordered not to come within 200 metres of the female officer.
His trial is set to begin Sept. 10, 2018.
