Clarification – July 4 2018, 17:02 MT. This article, basing a statement on information initially published by the CBC, originally suggested the location of the incident was two kilometres outside the community. We have since removed that sentence while we check the exact location. This paragraph has been amended from its original form, as published on July 3, for clarity.
