Ten dead, at least 15 hurt in stabbings in Saskatchewan

The RCMP in Regina have issued an alert after a series of stabbings in at least 13 different locations near the James Smith Cree Nation and Wheldon, Saskatchewan.

According to the Regina Leader-Post, RCMP Assistant Commissioner Rhona Blackmore said ten people are dead and 13 others hurt, although there may be more victims.

The RCMP believe the stabbings were both targeted and random.

The James Smith Cree Nation is 58 km east of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, and Wheldon is 30 km southwest of James Smith. The First Nation has a population of 1,892.

The alert was issued just after 1 p.m. Eastern Standard Time for the arrests of 31-year-old Damien Sanderson and 30-year-old Myles Sanderson. Police said the two are considered armed and dangerous. It was later extended to include Alberta and Manitoba.

Meanwhile, Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe offered his “deepest condolences on behalf of the government and the people of Saskatchewan to all of the family and friends of the victims of today’s horrific attacks.”
