Police said earlier in the evening that residents of the First Nation should remain indoors while officers respond to what they described as an “active threat to the community.”

An RCMP spokesperson told Global News that the Mounties deployed an emergency response team and that police were initially called to respond to an incident shortly after 5:30 p.m.

“Additional RCMP resources have been dispatched to investigate this tragic event,” police said.

Police did not reveal any details about the victims or suspects, or provide any specific details about the three different locations where a shooting occurred.
