Yukon RCMP has killed a man in Whitehorse.
RCMP revealed they received a 911 call recently about a male with a firearm close to the Air North cargo office south of the city’s airport.
In a statement, police said many officers and the Yukon RCMP police dog service were at the scene where a suspect “was engaged by police and there was a police-involved shooting.”
The man was rushed to the hospital but was certified dead.
The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team, a team that investigates police shootings in Yukon, has been informed.
Police reveal the shooting was “tragic” but no other details of the incident will be released to the public as it is now a criminal matter.
The statement read: “As to what took place at Air North Cargo, all of our available resources will continue ensuring public safety as we follow up on this investigation and continue to provide policing services to Whitehorse and throughout the Yukon.
“There is no further risk to the public.”
