10 dead, 15 injured in Canada stabbing spree; 2 suspects at large


At least 10 people are dead and 15 more have been hospitalized after two men went on a stabbing spree across Saskatchewan, Canada on Sunday, cops said.

Two suspects — identified by Canadian police as Damien Sanderson and Myles Sanderson — remain at large and are believed to be traveling in the Regina area in a black Nissan Rogue, according to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).

The 10 fatal victims were found in 13 separate locations across the central province, including James Smith Cree Nation and Weldon, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said.

The two men allegedly targeted some of their victims, while others were random, according to police.

Police have advised local residents to take precautions and consider sheltering in place, according to an emergency alert. The men were considered armed and dangerous.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called stabbings “horrific and heartbreaking.”

“I’m thinking of those who have lost a loved one and of those who were injured,” Trudeau said in a post on Twitter Sunday night.
