The investigation continues, in the death of a Buick Creek farmer.

An unidentified man was shot dead on Wednesday afternoon, after an altercation that began on the weekend.

The Fort St. John RCMP was notified of a domestic dispute on Saturday. The man had reportedly pursued a van carrying his wife, children, and a friend. Officers say the man then confined himself to his farm, near Buick Creek.

Officers remained at the scene during the standoff, and say the man was shot on another attempt to leave his property.

Corperal Dan Moskaluk spoke to reporters about the incident this afternoon in Fort St. John.

Moskaluk didn’t reveal many details about the incident, as the investigation is ongoing.

However, he says the process could take a while to go through.
