Constable Michael Buday, a Dog Master, was shot and killed on Teslin Lake, which straddles the Yukon-British Columbia Border. The incident occurred on the shoreline in very thick woods. Constable Buday was stationary and very well covered from an approach from the lake as part of an ERT operational plan. The suspect managed to circle through the thick woods and sneak up behind him unobserved, shooting him in the back.

Another constable who was with Constable Buday returned fire, killing the suspect.
