CAPE DORSET, Nunavut – Police say they are dealing with a possible active shooter in Nunavut.

RCMP say in a news release Saturday that officers are responding to a “dynamic situation” unfolding in Cape Dorset.

Mounties say they received reports of a possible gunshot believed to be from an adult male.

While they attempt to locate the suspect, police are urging residents to stay inside their houses and steer clear of the 1000 block area.

There are no reports of injuries.

Cape Dorset senior administrative officer John Hussey says officials are working to keep the community informed by sending an alert to cellphones and communicating over Facebook and the radio.
