Brother of Lucien Silverquill questions whether RCMP could have avoided shooting him

Moses Silverquill sobbed as he crouched beside a stained patch of ground outside a home on the Fishing Lake First Nation.

"You can see the big blood stain where he was bleeding out," said Silverquill, referring to his brother Lucien.

Lucien Silverquill died Tuesday after being shot twice by RCMP.

"Probably the gunshot wound to the chest maybe, I don't know. That's where he dropped," Moses said.

On Tuesday, officers from the Wadena detachment were called to a home on the Fishing Lake First Nation at roughly 1:23 p.m. CST, according to RCMP. Someone had reported that a man armed with a knife was causing a disturbance outside of their home.
