On Thanksgiving in Cape Dorset, Nunavut, an 18-year-old man shot and killed his 23-year-old brother.

Two days later, on Oct. 13, two 15-year-old boys roamed through the community firing a shotgun hitting occupied homes and blasting holes in a stop sign.

Cape Dorset sits on the southwest tip of Baffin Island. It’s known for the world class art, but lately it has been gripped by a rash of violence and suicides.

Fear now roams Cape Dorset’s streets.

APTN National News reporter Kent Driscoll was there.
