Man dies on George Gordon First Nation after being shot by Sask. RCMP

A man has died after being shot by RCMP on a First Nation in east-central Saskatchewan.

Saskatchewan RCMP say officers from the Punnichy, Sask., detachment went to a location on the George Gordon First Nation Tuesday afternoon where a man with a rifle was making threats.

"In the course of events, the responding police officers discharged a firearm and injured the man," according to an RCMP press release.

The man, whose identity has not been disclosed, was pronounced dead at the scene following life-saving efforts.

Exactly what prompted officers to shoot is unclear. The RCMP, which initially reported the incident late Tuesday night, said it would not hold a news conference about the shooting on Wednesday.
