    RCMP officer shot to death in Nunavut hamlet

    Const. Douglas Scott of Brockville, Ont., is 2nd Mountie fatally shot in North in past month

    Last Updated: Tuesday, November 6, 2007 | 11:51 AM CT

    CBC News


    An RCMP officer was shot and killed in the Baffin Island hamlet of Kimmirut Monday night and a suspect was arrested hours later.

    RCMP Const. Douglas Scott, 20, is shown in this RCMP handout photo.
    (RCMP/Canadian Press)
    Const. Douglas Scott, 20, who was originally from the Brockville, Ont., area, was responding alone to a complaint of an impaired driver shortly before 11 p.m. ET, Chief Supt. Marty Cheliak, the RCMP's commanding officer in Nunavut, told a news conference Tuesday.
    Scott is the second Mountie to be shot and killed in Canada's North in the past month.
    "The death of any of our members is deeply felt," Cheliak said.


    "But when, once again, it occurs in one of our close-knit communities in the North, the pain of that loss seems even greater."
    At 10:56 p.m, Scott was called to respond to a complaint of an impaired driver, Cheliak said. Six minutes later, he radioed in to say he was following up on the call.
    A fellow officer tried to reach him at about 11:30 p.m., but received no response. Local residents told the officer that Scott had responded to the report of an impaired driver and that the driver had crashed into a residence.
    Scott was found and later pronounced dead at 11:45 p.m.
    "Upon arrival at the scene, it was found that our member had been shot," Cheliak said.

    Kimmirut is located 120 kilometres south of Iqaluit on Baffin Island.
    (CBC)
    Shortly afterwards, a standoff ensued at a residence nearby and ended at about 4:10 a.m. with a man surrendering without incident.
    The suspect has not been identified, but is in custody in Iqaluit. Charges had not been laid Tuesday morning.
    Cheliak expressed his sympathies to the officer's parents, Doug and Maria Scott, who live near Brockville.
    The RCMP say Scott had only been posted in the North, including in Kimmirut, about six months ago. Mayor Joe Arlooktoo said Scott was supposed to be in the hamlet for two years.
    Police expect the investigation to take a number of days.
    At a separate news conference in Ottawa, RCMP Chief Supt. Fraser Macaulay said they are doing a "very indepth and comprehensive review" of the force's backup policy and other policies relating to "incidents such as these."
    He added that "every call for service has potential inherent danger. In this case, it starts as an impaired driver."
    Iqaluit residents join hands

    Everything in Kimmirut, a hamlet of about 400, was closed Tuesday morning. The community is about 120 kilometres south of Iqaluit on Baffin Island.
    In the territorial capital of Iqaluit, residents were invited to join hands around the local RCMP detachment in a ceremony Tuesday afternoon.
    The ceremony was organized by the Joe Kunuk, executive director of Nunavut Tunngavik Inc., the organization responsible for implementing the territory's Inuit land claim agreement.
    "Anytime anyone passes away, it's always hard to accept that they're gone," Kunuk told CBC News.
    When "someone who was on duty — protecting our society and making sure that we live in peace — is shot, it makes it all the more harder to ignore it," he said.
    In a written statement, Kunuk called for "the violence" to end. He said he hopes the afternoon ceremony will show support for Scott and for all RCMP officers who serve.
    Scott, who was born on Dec. 21, 1986, hailed from Lyn, Ont., eight kilometres north of Brockville. His family learned of what happened around 6 a.m. ET Tuesday.
    His uncle, Staff Sgt. Chris Scott of the Kingston Police Force, told CBC News that his nephew had graduated from RCMP training in the spring. He was initially posted to a larger centre in Nunavut before being transferred to Kimmirut, Scott said.
    "Dougie," the oldest of three boys, was just getting ready to see his family in what would have been his first visit home in a long time, his uncle said.
    215 Mounties killed in line of duty

    The shooting comes almost one month after RCMP Const. Christopher Worden was shot to death while responding to a house call in Hay River, N.W.T.
    Police launched a search for the suspected shooter a day after the Oct. 6 shooting, and five days later, Emrah Bulatci surrendered to police following a standoff. He has been charged with first-degree murder.
    Including Monday's shooting, a total of 215 RCMP officers have been killed in the line of duty since the 1870s. Some have been high-profile deaths, such as the shootings of four young officers in Rochfort Bridge, Alta., in March 2005, and the deaths of two Mounties shot near Mildred, Sask., in July 2006.
    Const. Jurgen Ziegfried Seewald, 47, was shot and killed in Nunavut in March 2001 after responding to a domestic dispute in the community of Cape Dorset.

    Rest easy, Constable Scott. You have done the RCMP proud.

    RIP Constable Scott! Though your career has been short your loss will forever be felt. St Michael has another soldier to watch over the brethren.
    Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.
