The duo has made victims in at least thirteen villages, including James Smith Cree Nation and Weldon. The first report of a stabbing came to the police around 5:30 a.m. on Sunday morning (local time). More reports soon followed and an hour and a half later a warning was issued for the province of Saskatchewan and the neighboring provinces of Alberta and Manitoba.

“Armed and dangerous”

Residents are asked to stay indoors, those on the road are advised not to take hitchhikers with them. The two suspects, a 30-year-old and a 31-year-old man, are considered “armed and dangerous”. The search area for the police, the provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, is together the size of half of Europe.


According to police, some victims were chosen at random, but others appear to have been attacked deliberately. A possible motive for the murders has not yet been released.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has described the multiple stabbings that killed 10 people on Twitter as “horrifying and disturbing”.

“My thoughts are with those who have lost loved ones and those who were injured,” Trudeau said.
