(ANSA) – Washington, 04 September – A massive manhunt in Canada has left 10 people dead and 15 injured in a series of stabbings in some remote and isolated communities in the country’s central province of Saskatchewan. Rescue workers indicated that others may be injured.
Police are looking for two suspects, of whom they have released general information and identification: Damian Sanderson, 31, with black hair and brown eyes, and Miles Sandersos, 30, who fled in a black Nissan Rogue. .
The relationship between the two is still unclear.
The search began as thousands of fans flocked to Regina for the traditional (and sold out) Labor Day football game between the Saskatchewan Roughriders and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
The alert was initially only issued in Saskatchewan, but was extended to neighboring Alberta and Manitoba after the killers were seen fleeing in cars. Police urged residents in these remote areas to exercise extreme caution and stay indoors if possible.
The attacks occurred in at least 13 different locations, particularly between the James Smith Cree Nation and the Weldon, and local communities declared a state of emergency. According to investigators, some victims appear to have been hit randomly and others on purpose. But the motive remains unknown.
Rescue workers described the horrific scenes. “What happened in our province today is horrific,” said Rhonda Blackmore, assistant commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The injured were shifted to different hospitals in two helicopters. (handle).
