One person is dead and two youths have been arrested after a disturbance on Pauingassi First Nation in east-central Manitoba.

RCMP were called to a house on Tuesday, just before 8 a.m., and found the man dead outside.

Two youths have been arrested but no charges have yet been laid.

An autopsy is scheduled in Winnipeg today.

The name of the victim is not being released at this time.

RCMP believe the victim and the two people arrested knew each other.

All are residents of Pauingassi, which is located about 280 kilometres northeast of Winnipeg.
