Police in Canada says that at least ten people have been killed and another fifteen injured in a stabbing rampage in Canada’s central Saskatchewan province on Sunday.

The victims were found in thirteen locations in the James Smith Cree Nation and the nearby village of Weldon.

Two suspects named as Damien Sanderson and Myles Sanderson are on the run and considered armed and dangerous.

Residents have been told to shelter in place, as a massive manhunt continues across a huge geographical area.

“Do not leave a secure location…Use caution allowing others into your residence,” Saskatchewan Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) tweeted.

Stabbings among the deadliest acts of mass violence in Canada

Checkpoints have been set up, with police checking travelers’ identification, and drivers have been urged not to pick up hitchhikers.

It is one of the deadliest acts of mass violence Canada has ever seen.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau described the attack on Twitter as “horrific and heartbreaking.”

“I am shocked and devastated by the horrific attacks today,” he said in a separate statement. “Those responsible for today’s abhorrent attacks must be fully brought to justice.”

At a news briefing on Sunday evening, police said there could be more injured people than the fifteen they already know about who had taken themselves to the hospital.

There is no information on the motive of the killings.
