The shooting took place at a rural residence seven kilometres northeast of Prince Albert. Police initially received a report on the shooting on Tuesday morning shortly after 8 a.m.
An autopsy on Terry McDougald has been ordered and was scheduled to be conducted on Wednesday.
Larry James McDougald, 66, of Prince Albert has been charged with second-degree murder, attempted murder and pointing a firearm. He was held in custody and made his first appearance in provincial court on Wednesday morning at 10 a.m.
