MADRID, 5 (EUROPE PRESS)
The Canadian Police (RCMP) reported this Sunday that at least ten people have died and 15 have been injured in a multiple stabbing at various locations in the province of Saskatchewan, in central Canada.
“At this point in the investigation, we have located ten lifeless bodies in 13 locations,” a police spokeswoman explained at a press conference. In addition, she added that “several additional victims” were injured, including 15 who had to be transferred to hospitals.
According to the preliminary investigation, the agents consider “that some of the victims have been attacked intentionally, while others have been attacked at random.”
Authorities are trying to locate two male suspects, Damien Sanderson, 31; and Myles Sanderson, 30. The RCMP has issued a province-wide alert on two dangerous people, as it considers that both suspects are still armed.
“As the suspects are at large, we have also requested that the alert be extended to Manitoba and Alberta,” Canadian Police said in a press release.
Agents have recommended citizens to take precautions. “If you are in the area, seek immediate shelter. Do not leave a safe place and be careful when allowing other people to enter your residence,” the police force has warned. He has also asked neighbors not to approach suspicious people or pick up individuals on the highways.
The president of Canada, Justin Trudeau, has lamented the event and has asked residents to follow the instructions of local authorities.
“The attacks in Saskatchewan today are horrific and heartbreaking. I think of those who have lost a loved one and those who have been injured,” he said in a post on the social network Twitter.
Thus, Trudeau has added that they are “closely monitoring the situation.” “We urge everyone to follow the updates from local authorities,” he has requested.
“Thank you to all the brave rescuers for your efforts on the ground,” concluded the Canadian president.
