EEYOU ISTCHEE JAMES BAY — A 19-year-old died Sunday night during an intervention with Chisasibi First Nations police in a Cree community in northern Quebec.
Police responded to a call around 9:45 p.m. that claimed a person was outside a home with a gun. Police attempted to negotiate with the man, but said the weapon was turned on them.
The Bureau des enquêtes indépendantes has called on the Sûreté du Québec to investigate. Investigators are expected to arrive mid-afternoon Monday. Chisasibi is a village on James Bay, about 1,400 kilometres north of Montreal.
