While monitoring the perimeter, a male person inside the
house shot multiple times and was holding a woman hostage. The KRPF
chartered a flight from Puvirnituq to Inukjuak in order to send three additional
officers to provide support. The Sûreté du Québec (provincial police) was
immediately contacted to request the assistance of negotiators and tactical
units. The situation was resolved at 11:38 a.m. on June 3 when
the suspect surrendered to police. Sixteen charges have been laid against the
suspect and his next court appearance is scheduled for June 8.
