First Nation seeks probe of police shooting

The Manto Sipi Cree Nation of northern Manitoba is seeking an independent review of a police shooting.

Terence Yellowback, 27, was shot in the leg by a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer on April 5. He was then hit with a Taser gun.

"It wasn't necessary to get shot first," Yellowback told CBC News. "It's supposed to be the other way around: the Taser first, then shot."

Chief Roger Ross says the RCMP has kept the band in the dark about the case.
