NEW YORK — Ten people were stabbed to death across multiple locations in Canada’s Saskatchewan province, Royal Canadian Mounted Police said on Sunday.

Police said that they received a first call about a stabbing in Saskatchewan’s James Smith Cree Nation at 5:40 a.m., before receiving further reports of stabbing incidents.

“At this point in our investigation we have located 10 deceased individuals in 13 locations,” a RCMP spokesperson said in a press briefing, adding that “several additional victims” were injured, including 15 who were taken to hospital.

Police said that they believed “some of the victims have been targeted by the suspects and others have been attacked randomly.”

Two male suspects, 31-year-old Damien Sanderson and 30-year-old Myles Sanderson, were still at large and “considered armed and dangerous,” the RCMP said.
