Two teenagers have been charged with murder in the death of a young man from Kangirsuk, in Northern Quebec.

The Kativik Regional Police Force got a call about gunfire early Sunday morning in the Ungava Bay community.


An individual was found unconscious and later died at the local health centre. Police have not released the name of the deceased.

"Yesterday via video-conference, two individuals were charged with first degree murder, conspiracy and attempted murder," said Sgt. Marc Tessier with the Sûreté du Québec in Kuujjuaq.

Tessier said 19-year-old Jamie Etook and a 17-year-old male youth will remain in custody. The youth cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

Tessier said police are continuing their investigation. This is the fourth major shooting in Nunavik this year.
