On Sunday, police searched a province in Canada for two male suspects, noting that some attacks were targeted while others appeared random.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police reported that at least 10 individuals have been found dead and 15 others have been sent to the hospital in what one officer called “a very big occurrence, if not the largest we’ve seen in the recent number of years.” After the widespread stabbing, which took place in at least 13 separate locations throughout Saskatchewan province, authorities declared that they were looking for two male suspects.
Damien Sanderson, 31, and Myles Sanderson, 30, were identified as the suspects by the police. According to Rhonda Blackmore, commanding officer of the Saskatchewan Royal Canadian Mounted Police, “the location and route of travel remains unclear” for the two.
She did not provide a motive for the spree, according to the CBC.
To handle the high number of victims, the Saskatchewan Health Authority activated its emergency response process, calling for additional staff to help process the “influx of casualties,” a spokesperson said. Only some of the victims appeared to have been deliberately targeted, according to Blackmore.
