The RCMP’s fatal shooting of an Indigenous Saskatchewan man last summer will now be reviewed by provincial Crown prosecutors.

Lucien Silverquill, a 37-year-old Saulteaux man, died on Aug. 27, 2019, outside his family’s home on the Fishing Lake First Nation reserve, located about 20 kilometres southeast of Wadena, Sask.

According to an RCMP statement at the time, officers from Wadena were called to the home early that afternoon because Silverquill had a knife and was causing a disturbance. Shortly after officers arrived, at least one member shot Silverquill under circumstances that remain unclear. Silverquill died at the scene.

The Moose Jaw Police Service investigated the shooting. Superintendent Brent Mackey said he planned to deliver the investigative file to provincial Crown lawyers this week. They will review the case for signs of criminal wrongdoing, which is standard in police-involved deaths.
