Canada stabbings: Suspect not found after reported sighting
Saskatchewan, Sep 07: Canadian police on Tuesday continued looking for one of two brotherssuspected of stabbing 10 people in Saskatchewan, Canada.
Police also warned residents over the possible sighting of suspect Myles S. around the James Smith Cree First Nation reserve and asked them to stay home.
Authorities, who then descended with their guns and surrounded a home at the Indigenous reserve, later said they might have responded to a false alarm, The Associated Press reported.
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.
What happened in the attacks?
Police were called to the James Smith Cree Nation over a stabbing Sunday at 5:40 am and soon heard about several others.
The killing spree left ten dead and 18 injured, with victims found at 13 different locations on the sparsely populated reserve and nearby Weldon town.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called the attacks "shocking and heartbreaking."
The elected leaders of the three communities that make up the James Smith Cree Nation declared a local state of emergency.
