The RCMP is investigating the murder of a First Nations man at a medium security prison in Manitoba.

Tyler St. Paul, 21, of Lake Manitoba First Nation was found dead Monday at the Milner Ridge Institution in central Manitoba.

St. Paul was beaten to death as part of a punishment executed by gang members, according to a source inside the institution.

St. Paul was serving a 15 month sentence for drug trafficking.

Eight inmates who were reportedly members of the Indian Posse gang were charged in the non-fatal beating of another inmate in December 2009.
