A 31-year-old man was shot to death by an RCMP officer in Clyde River on Tuesday night.
The officer became engaged in a “use of force situation” and then fired their gun, according to an RCMP news release issued today at noon.
The wounded man was immediately transported to the health centre and was pronounced dead.
Ottawa Police Service will conduct an independent investigation into the actions of the RCMP.
There was another incident in Cape Dorset on Feb. 26 where a man was killed in an incident with police. Ottawa Police Service was called upon to investigate that situation as well. No conclusive information from that earlier ordeal has yet been released to the public.
