The police operation is over in Salluit, a man has been arrested
The Inuit community of Salluit is located just above of the 62nd parallel.
After keeping police on their toes for several hours, a 24-year-old man, Danielly Kadjulik, was arrested in Salluit, in northern Nunavik. The suspect had been on the run since Sunday evening, after firing several times in the village, according to the police.
Public Security lifted the confinement, while an alert of imminent threat had been triggered earlier Monday afternoon. The residents were confined to their homes for several hours.
A team from the Nunavik Police Service was dispatched from Kuujjuaq to lend a hand to the police on site.
The man was seen and then surrounded by the police in the tundra, near the village of Salluit.
After a long negotiation, he tried to flee on foot and was caught by our agents, who were able to arrest him quickly. Luckily, he was no longer armed and did not cause any injuries, indicates the deputy chief of operations of the Nunavik Police Service, Jean-François Morin.
The investigation continues to clarify the circumstances of the event.
Danielly Kadjulik is expected to appear Tuesday by videoconference. He faces several counts related to the dangerous use of a firearm.
