(Fwrd Axis) — At least have died and 15 others were hospitalized in a series of stabbings in Canada’s Saskatchewan province, police said Sunday.
Officials said the attacks took place on Sunday morning in James Smith Cree Nation and Weldon, which occurred across 13 separate locations, with at least 15 people being treated for stab wounds.
Saskatchewan RCMP commanding officer Rhonda Blackmore said it was the worst mass killing in the province’s history.
“We believe some of the victims have been targeted by the suspects and others have been attacked randomly,” she said at a news conference.
Damien Sanderson, 31, and Myles Sanderson, 30 were named as suspects. The two men were believed to be traveling in a black Nissan Rogue SUV with Saskatchewan plate identification 119 MPI. Authorities said people were told not to approach the suspects.
“If Damian and Myles are listening or receive this information, I would ask that they turn themselves in to the police immediately,” Blackmore said.
Canadian Football League’s Saskatchewan Roughriders added more security prior to their home game on Sunday night against Regina.
