Baker Lake faced a violent morning Nov. 28 after resident was shot inside a local residence.

Nunavut RCMP said that Baker Lake police responded to a shooting in Baker Lake’s 4000 block Nov. 28 at 5:30 a.m.

Police say the victim of the shooting was treated for non-life threatening injuries at the local health centre, while the suspect who allegedly shot the individual barricaded himself inside the home.

RCMP members arrested a 23-year-old man a few hours later. Police say no charges have been laid as the RCMP continues to investigate the incident.

At the same time an armed man in Resolute Bay was at large as of the morning of Nov. 28, prompting a community lockdown there.

The man was found deceased in a residence early in the afternoon of Nov. 28, following eight hours of negotiations with the RCMP.
