Pond man charged


IQALUIT — A lone gunman went on a shooting spree in Pond Inlet last Friday.

Rueben Sangoya, 19, of Pond Inlet has been charged with two counts of attempted murder.

Police arrived around 7:15 a.m. on July 20 to find a young man was shooting a rifle. Sangoya shot four buildings, a police vehicle, an ATV and a dog. The dog died, but no people were injured.

The Pond Inlet RCMP had called in police from Iqaluit for back-up, but the gunman surrendered before they arrived.

Sangoya has been remanded into custody in Iqaluit and will appear in the Nunavut Court of Justice on July 31.
