I saw that article on CBC website, if there any C-D users who stay in that area, stay safe and be careful.

Melfort RCMP have issued a provincewide dangerous persons alert after multiple people were stabbed in the James Smith Cree Nation and Weldon, Sask.

RCMP said in a press conference at 3:40 CT that they found 10 people deceased and at least 15 people have been hospitalized. RCMP said they found 13 incident locations in James Smith Cree Nation and Weldon.

"There maybe additional injured victims who transported themselves to various hospitals," Rhonda Blackmore, commanding officer of the Saskatchewan RCMP, said.

"We are currently actively looking for it, dedicating maximum resources to this."

RCMP said they received a report that the two suspects, identified as Damien Sanderson and Myles Sanderson, may have been travelling in the Arcola Avenue area in Regina. Regina Police said the suspects were seen around 11:20 a.m.

It's just horrifying. Such devastation and grief in those communities.

I wonder if anyone will ever figure out what chain of events led to this tragedy. But it will probably never make sense.

I just hope they find them quickly or that they turn themselves in.

If these lunatics are still on the loose, there could be more victims.

Are victims mostly aboriginals?

Prayers to all victims and those affected, it’s really sad!

Probably they were most likely targeted.

There hasn't been any official information on that that I've seen, but the known victims were from an Indigenous reserve (James Smith Cree Nation) and a village near to the reserve (Weldon). It's a fairly remote location, and I'd presume yes for those on reserve, but no identities of victims have been released so far. I have no idea who lives in Weldon.

Terrible news. Some were targeted, some were random attacks. It kind of sounds like the residents suspect the killing spree is a result of bad drugs that came onto the reserve. Drugs are briefly mentioned by Chief Bobby Cameron of the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations in his message of condolences:

Apparently both suspects were heavy meth users.
