The Mounties are investigating what appears to have been a fatal shooting in Manola, about an hour-and-a-half northwest of Edmonton.
Officers were called to a home in the tiny hamlet early Wednesday morning, with reports that a man had been shot.
When they arrived, the man was found dead, but an autopsy will have to determine the exact cause of his death.
The man’s name is being withheld, but police say another man has been arrested, adding this does not appear to have been a random incident.
The suspect’s name is also being withheld, as criminal charges have yet to be laid in the case. (td)
