Canadian police urge people to stay in their homes after possible sighting of mass stabbing suspect

Canadian authorities have asked James Smith Cree Nation residents to remain in their homes following the reported sightings of a suspect in mass stabbing.

Ten people were killed and 18 more injured in attacks on Weldon, Saskatchewan province.

CBC News in Canada reported that there was a large police presence at the reserve, which is about 320km (200 miles) from Regina, the provincial capital. This happened as the third day of the manhunt.

Hours later, however, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said that investigators had found that Myles Sanderson (30), was not in the reserve’s community and that authorities were still searching for him.

After the stabbings, hundreds of police officers launched an extensive manhunt to find Sanderson and his brother Damien Sanderson.

Damien, was found dead on Monday in a grassy area at James Smith Cree Nation.

According to police, Sanderson is still at large and considered dangerously armed.

According to officers, they are investigating Sanderson’s death and possible injuries that could cause Sanderson to require medical attention.

As it dealt with the possibility of seeing him, the RCMP urged James Smith Cree Nation residents to remain at home on Tuesday.

Premier Minister Justin Trudeau encouraged residents to listen to local authorities, and stated: “We have to ensure that everyone remains safe.

“All Canadians stand by the people of Saskatchewan in this time.”

The Sunday stabbing rampage was one of Canada’s most violent attacks in modern times.

Police claimed that some victims were deliberately targeted, while others were randomly attacked.

Although officers have not yet revealed the motive for the stabbings, a statement by an indigenous group suggests that they could be drug-related.

A group representing Saskatchewan’s indigenous peoples said that the stabbings had caused them “immeasurable stress” and panic.

They also appealed to the public for relevant information.

Ivor Wayne Burns, a James Smith Cree Nation resident, stated that the Sanderson brothers belonged the indigenous community and were under drug influence at the time of attacks.

Police have been searching for Sanderson since May when he stopped meeting with his parole officer following a sentence for assault and robbery as well as mischief and uttering threats.

According to documents from the Parole Board of Canada, he has been convicted of 59 crimes over two decades.

The victims included both men and women of all ages. There was not much information.

Locals said that among the victims were a mother-of-two, a widower of 77 years and a first responder.

At least two shootings have been reported in Saskatchewan since Sunday’s violence. They are not believed to be related to the stabbings.
