RCMP arrest man after body found on Little Tancook Island
The RCMP has arrested a man in connection with a shooting incident on Little Tancook Island that left another man dead.
The Mounties say they received a call shortly before 9 a.m. on Tuesday regarding a dead man found in a field on the island.
Preliminary investigation showed the 47-year-old victim, who was a resident of the island, had been shot.
Officers arrested a 60-year-old man around 10:15 a.m. without incident.
The RCMP says the suspect and victim knew each other and the death is being treated as suspicious.
Local residents say the 10:30 a.m. ferry crossing was cancelled because police needed the ferry around 9 a.m. to bring officers across.
