"To the people of Saskatchewan and beyond – please be assured that we are using every human, and investigational and technological resource we have available to locate and arrest the persons responsible for this tragedy and to ensure your safety," said Saskatchewan RCMP Commander Officer, Assistant Commissioner Rhonda Blackmore.
Blackmore added that hundreds of Saskatchewan RCMP staff are dedicated to this investigation, including operators taking 911 calls and tips, frontline officers patrolling the streets to the on-scene specialized forensic and Major Crime Unit teams who continue to follow up on all information and evidence gathered.
Investigators have confirmed there are ten deceased victims. In addition, there are now 18 individuals reported as injured.
"Yesterday, Saskatchewan RCMP issued a dangerous person alert and several subsequent updates. This alert will be extended and we urge residents to continue to remain vigilant until Myles and Damien Sanderson are located and arrested," an RCMP press release stated.
