Police say they were called to a disturbance complaint early Friday morning in the community, around 90 kilometres northwest of High Level.

When they arrived, they found a man with serious injuries. He died of these injuries a short time later, police said in a news release.

The RCMP's Major Crimes Unit is involved. Police say a person of interest is in custody and is being treated in hospital for injuries sustained during the incident.
