Armed man found dead


Police are investigating the death of a man in Chesterfield Inlet. He was seen wandering around the community with a rifle and later found dead in a house cordoned off by officers called in from Iqaluit.

RCMP officers in the community responded to worries about the 34-year-old seen with a gun in hand on July 30. He later walked into a house, which police cordoned off before asking for back-up from a special containment team.

Police tried to contact the man, but received no reply. They entered the house and found he was dead. No one else was in the building.

The coroner’s office is investigating.
