Constable Scott was shot and killed after responding to a report of a drunk driver on the remote Baffin Island in Nunavut shortly before midnight. Dispatchers lost contact with Constable Scott shortly after he radioed that he was responding to the incident.
A second constable responded to the scene and located Constable Scott's body.
An RCMP Swat team was flown to the location and the suspect surrendered approximately four hours after the shooting.
Constable Scott had served with the agency for 1 year.
