Debassige inquest wraps up

The inquest looking into the police shooting of Byron Debassige has wrapped up.

In 2008, the 28 year old First Nations man was shot and killed by Toronto police.

One of the issues that the inquest dealt with is how police handle situations where the person confronting them has a mental illness.
