A public inquest into the death of Ryan Natomagan-Nelson has been scheduled for September in Prince Albert.

The 26-year-old man was fatally shot in an altercation with Prince Albert police in 2013.

Two police officers had entered a building on July 9 when Natomagan-Nelson confronted them with a knife.

It is believed both police officers fired their guns.

Natomagan-Nelson was taken to Victoria Hospital and later pronounced dead.

In the inquest, the chief coroner will establish the circumstances around his death and make recommendations to prevent similar deaths in the future.

The inquest will run through Sept. 8-12 at the Prince Albert Travelodge.

Coroner Brent Gough of Saskatoon will preside.
