Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer shot and killed while on duty in Kimmirut, Nunavut. Constable Scott was responding to a report of an impaired driver. Shortly after, radio contact was lost and another member was dispatched to investigate. Cst. Scott was found dead in his truck and a male suspect was later arrested after a four-hour standoff at a nearby residence. Kimmirut, a remote hamlet on southern Baffin Island with about 400 people, is a dry town where alcohol is banned by local laws.

He was very personable and well-liked in the community he served. Family and friends remembered him as a fine young man who wanted to be a policeman from the time he was ten years old. He enjoyed playing softball, skiing, fishing, four-wheeling and snowmobiling.
Cst. Scott is survived by his parents, Doug and Marla, younger brothers Chad and Layne and extended family.
A regimental funeral was held on Tuesday, November 13, 2007 at Wall Street United Church in Brockville, Ontario. Private family interment service.
