At a press conference, Deputy Commissioner Rhonda Blackmore assured that they have identified Damien Sanderson and Myles Sanderson, 31 and 30 years old, respectively, as alleged perpetrators of the attacks and that they now face a search warrant for unknown whereabouts.
“We are asking residents of Saskatchewan and our neighboring provinces to be vigilant. At this stage of our investigation, we believe that some of the victims have been intentionally targeted by the suspects and others have been randomly targeted,” Blackmore stated in his statement.

The deputy commissioner explained that the first emergency call was made at 5:40 am (local time) to report a stabbing in the James Smith Cree Nation and later there were numerous calls to notify about the rest of the events from various places in the Province.
The stabbings occurred at 13 separate scenes in the James Smith Cree Nation and Weldon areas of Saskatchewan.
For their part, the health authorities are also on alert to provide resources and receive possible victims, while treating and evaluating more than a dozen victims.
Thinking of the victims of the horrific stabbings in Saskatchewan today.
I can’t begin to imagine the pain and heartbreak their families are now suffering.
Hoping police are able to quickly catch the attackers at large and bring them to justice.

The police alarm has now spread to the neighboring regions of Manitoba and Alberta, because the fugitives were seen aboard a vehicle.
Damien and Myles Sanderson were classified as “armed and dangerous” and the police call on the population not to expose themselves unnecessarily, to remain at home, accompanied in safe places.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau issued a statement of support for the families of the victims and condemned the events, calling them “horrible and heartbreaking.”
