10 people were killed, and 15 were injured in stabbings that took place in 13 different locations in Saskatchewan, Canada.

“Early indications may be that victims are attacked randomly”, The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) Saskatchewan said.

From AP News:

REGINA, Saskatchewan (AP) — A series of stabbings at an Indigenous community and at another town nearby in Saskatchewan left 10 people dead and 15 wounded, Canadian police said Sunday as they searched across the expansive province for two suspects.

The stabbings took place in multiple locations on the James Smith Cree Nation and in the village of Weldon, northeast of Saskatoon, police said.

Rhonda Blackmore, the Assistant Commissioner of the RCMP Saskatchewan, said some of the victims appear to have been targeted by the suspects but others appear to have been attacked at random. She couldn’t provide a motive.

“It is horrific what has occurred in our province today,” Blackmore said, adding there were 13 crime scenes where either deceased or injured people were found.

The suspects are armed and dangerous, according to the RCMP, and they have warned people not to leave their locations, to seek shelter, and not to pick up any hitchhikers.
