Second suspect in Saskatchewan attacks arrested


SASKATOON — RCMP say they have arrested Myles Sanderson, the second suspect in the deadly stabbing attacks northeast of Saskatoon.

RCMP say he was found near the town of Rosthern, Saskatchewan on the fourth day of a massive manhunt.

The arrest took place around 3:30 p.m. local time.

Ten people were killed and 18 injured in attacks that took place on Sunday in James Smith’s Cree Nation and the nearby village of Weldon.

Another suspect, Sanderson’s brother, was found dead in a grassy area near one of the crime scenes on Monday.

Earlier Monday, a notice sent through Saskatchewan’s emergency alert system reported a person armed with a knife driving a stolen vehicle northeast of Saskatoon.

This individual was reportedly driven in a white 2008 Chevy Avalanche through the community of Wakaw, where the vehicle was allegedly stolen.

On Twitter, the RCMP confirmed that there was no longer any danger to the population in connection with this investigation.
