On Sunday, a series of stabbings near the Canadian province of Saskatchewan left 10 people dead and 15 wounded.
Reportedly involving 2 suspects, the stabbings occurred in multiple locations on the James Smith Cree Nation and in the village of Weldon, northeast of Saskatoon. The Police began receiving reports of stabbings before 6 a.m. in the First Nation community. More reports of attacks quickly followed and by midday police issued a warning that a vehicle reportedly carrying the two suspects had been spotted in Regina.
Rhonda Blackmore, the Assistant Commissioner of the RCMP Saskatchewan, said some of the victims appear to have been targeted by the suspects but others appear to have been attacked randomly.
She couldn’t provide a motive. “It is horrific what has occurred in our province today,” Blackmore said, adding there are 13 crime scenes where either deceased or injured people were found. She urged the suspects to turn themselves in.
Among the two suspects- Damien Sanderson, 31, was described as five feet seven inches tall and 155 pounds, and Myles Sanderson, 30, as six-foot-one and 200 pounds.
