Three people have been killed and another two seriously injured in a shootout in a remote Greenland community, according to reports.
Police have taken a helicopter to the hamlet of Nutaarmiut, about 90km from Upernavik in west central Greenland.
“We have been informed by a citizen that three people have been shot and killed in Nutaarmiut and two people are said to be injured,” Claus Risbjerg of the Greenland Central Police Authority said in a Politken report.
Nutaarmiut is home to around 55 people and is one of many small hunting communities in the country that does not have a permanent police presence.
“We have no information on who did this. We have a helicopter due to land up there soon with police, a doctor and nurses. When we have our people on the scene, we will have further information,” Risbjerg said.
