A day of searching for a shooter on the Ahtahkakoop Cree Nation has come to an end.
RCMP say around 5 p.m. Tuesday, a 59-year-old man was located in the community.
While RCMP officers were on the scene, a gun was used. The suspect was taken to the Shellbrook hospital where he was pronounced dead. RCMP say no officers fired their weapons.
Investigators believe the 59-year-old is the person who shot and killed a 56-year-old man Tuesday morning.
The RCMP were first called to the First Nation around 10 a.m. after receiving reports that shots had been fired at the health centre. The 56-year-old man was found dead afterwards.
At the time, a man wearing camouflage was spotted leaving the area on an ATV.
The RCMP do not believe there are other suspects.
The RCMP requested the Saskatoon Police Service conduct an independent, external investigation into the shooting. Saskatoon police will report the results to the Ministry of Justice and Attorney General.
The RCMP say since this incident is being investigated by an external agency, they will not be able to provide further details at this time.
