Canadian police have released very little information so far about the incident that took place this past Sunday.

Apparently, a 22 year-old man shot and killed a fellow camper because he mistook them for a bear outside his tent in the middle of the night. The 22 year-old was camping along with the teen and two others near the Bloodvein River north of Winnipeg. The 22 year-old woke around four in the morning to the sound of what he thought was a bear outside his tent. He fired a shot that hit the 17 year-old, killing him.
