Ten people were killed and 15 injured in a series of stabbings in two communities in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan, authorities said on Sunday.
Police are looking for two suspects named Damien Sanderson and Myles Sanderson who are believed to be armed and dangerous on the run.
The stabbings took place at multiple locations across the James Smith Cree Nation and in the village of Weldon, northeast of Saskatoon, police said.
Rhonda Blackmore, deputy commissioner of the RCMP Saskatchewan, said some of the victims appeared to have been targeted by the suspects, but others appeared to have been attacked indiscriminately.
She couldn’t name a motive.
“It is appalling what happened in our province today,” Ms Blackmore said.
She said there were 13 crime scenes where either dead or injured were found.
The search for suspects was conducted as fans flocked to nearby Regina for a sell-out game between the Canadian Football League’s Saskatchewan Roughriders and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
