Initial investigation leads police to believe this does not appear to be a random incident.

The residential area along Mikisiw Drive in Air Ronge continues to be blocked off for an undetermined amount of time. La Ronge RCMP would like to thank members of the community for giving police the space required to conduct a thorough investigation.

An autopsy for the deceased adult male will be conducted by the Saskatchewan Coroners Service in Saskatoon on Nov. 22.

The investigation is ongoing.
