Police are investigating after two people were killed in separate hunting incidents in Saskatchewan and Alberta.
A 36-year-old Prince Albert man was shot and killed Friday evening, near Porcupine Plain in eastern Saskatchewan. Police say he was shot by his 63-year-old father, who mistook him for wildlife in a heavily wooded area.
RCMP Major Crimes division and the Saskatchewan Coroner's office are investigating.
In a separate incident on the same day, a young woman was shot and killed while out hunting with family south of Grande Prairie, Alta.
She was treated on the scene for a gunshot, before emergency crews transported her to a nearby hospital where she later died.
Cpl. Roy Kennedy told CTV Edmonton that the RCMP is investigating.
“We are investigating it from every angle right now,” Kennedy said. “I don’t think right now that we are looking at it from one angle or another.”
