At least 10 people have been killed and 18 people injured after two men went on a stabbing spree across multiple locations in Saskatchewan in central Canada on Sunday Sep. 4.

It is one of the deadliest attacks in Canada’s history, according to AP.

One of the suspects, 30-year-old Myles Sanderson, is still on the run and considered armed and dangerous.

The other suspect, 31-year-old Damien Sanderson, the brother of Myles Sanderson, was found dead on Monday in a grassy area near a crime scene at James Smith Cree Nation.

Police said his injuries did not appear to be self-inflicted.

Police said they received their first report of a stabbing in the Indigenous community of James Smith Cree Nation at 5:40 am local time on Sunday, followed by multiple calls reporting additional stabbings in the next few minutes.

10 people were found dead and multiple others injured in across 13 locations in James Smith Cree Nation and Weldon, a nearby town, police told a news conference.

At least 18 of the people who were injured were taken to various hospitals, authorities said, adding that more people who were injured likely took themselves to hospital.

Authorities say some of the victims were believed to have been targeted while others were randomly attacked, according to Global Times.

Authorities are still hunting for the Myles Sanderson, who they say has a lengthy criminal record.

Police say they believe he may have been injured and may seek medical attention, warning the public to remain vigilant.

Sakatchewan police have issued a province-wide dangerous person alert. Authorities in the nearby regions of Alberta and Manitoba have since also issued the alert.

The James Smith Cree Nation, which has a population of about 2,500, has declared a local state of emergency.

Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau tweeted that the attacks were “horrific and heartbreaking” and that his thoughts were with those who have lost a loved one and the injured.
