Vancouver-based animator and cartoonist Paul Boyd was shot and killed in a confrontation with the police last week . The police stated that they were responding to a 911 call of a man carrying a potentially dangerous weapon, and shot in self-defense after two officers were injured by Boyd, who was swinging a chain with a padlock at the end of it. Boyd suffered from bipolar disorder for several years, although many of his friends and colleagues in the Vancouver animation community expressed surprise over the nature of his death. Boyd was a director on Ed, Edd, ‘n Eddy and The Mr. Hell Show, and also provided animation on Mucha Lucha! and Gary Larson’s Tales from the Far Side special.

The incident is being investigated as a homicide by the RCMP’s Integrated Homicide Investigations Team.
