A suspect who died after another man was fatally shot on the Ahtahkakoop Cree Nation in Saskatchewan has been identified as the son of former N-H-L player Fred Sasakamoose.
A band councillor confirmed to a Saskatoon TV station 59-year-old Elgin Sasakamoose was being sought by R-C-M-P after the Tuesday morning shooting of a man friends have identified as heavy equipment operator Wayne Teed.
Mounties have said later that day they located a 59-year-old man who was believed to be responsible for the shooting, but while they were on scene the man suffered a gunshot wound and was taken to hospital, where he died.
RCMP say no police weapons were fired during the incident.
