The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) Major Crime Unit South investigated a firearms-related incident at Lions Park Campground Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan, a report said.
Meadow Lake RCMP received numerous reports that a firearm was discharged at the Lions Park campground around 2:44 p.m. on August 30.
Flying Dust First Nation‘s 34-year-old female was found dead in a campground area camper trailer.
Police arrived at Thunderchild First Nation to find a 34-year-old male dead from an apparent suicide in the same camper trailer.
Initial investigations have revealed that this was a domestic homicide–suicide. This week, autopsies will be performed in Saskatoon.
During the incident, a woman who was known to the deceased people was also hurt. The incident resulted in a minor injury that was treated at the hospital. She has been released.
Meadow Lake RCMP received a request from an individual for a wellness exam on the same 34-year-old woman. When the separate complaints about the firearm being discharged were made, police officers began investigating.
