A judge has reserved his decision on whether a Saskatchewan farmer accused of fatally shooting a First Nations man should be granted bail.

Gerald Stanley is charged with second-degree murder in the Aug. 9 death of 22-year-old Colten Boushie of the Red Pheasant First Nation.

Hundreds gathered outside the courthouse in North Battleford, Sask, Thursday. Many in support of the Boushie family.

Stanley’s bail hearing ended with the judge saying he will release a written decision on Friday or sometime next week.

All evidence presented at the hearing is subject to a publication ban.
