A massive manhunt, involving hundreds of police officers, continues for Myles S. for the third day since the mass stabbings on the James Smith Cree First Nation reserve and a nearby town last Sunday.

Police say there's a possibility that Myles S. is injured.

What police know about the suspects

Canadian police identified the suspects, Damien S. and Myles S., soon after they received a call Sunday morning about the stabbings.

Damien S. was found dead Monday in a "heavily grassed area" near the stabbing sites. Police are investigating whether Myles S. killed his brother.

Though the motive behind the stabbing is not clear, the chief of the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations suggested the stabbings could be drug-related.
