The chief of police in the provincial capital of Saskatchewan, Canada, is warning the public that mass stabbing suspect Myles Sanderson is “still at large and still considered armed and dangerous” after his deceased brother was discovered on Monday.

Regina police say Damien Sanderson, 31, was found dead around 11:30 a.m. local time on Monday, near where most of the stabbings in Canada have taken place. Myles and his now deceased brother are believed to have killed 10 people and injured 18 in a stabbing attack in the Cree Nation Indigenous community of James Smith and the nearby village of Weldon on Sunday.

“The question now is, where is Myles? Is Myles Sanderson still in Regina? Regina Police Chief Evan Bray said in a video message released late Monday night.

“This information that put him in our community is now more than a day old, and we have had no new information to determine that it is no longer factual,” he continued. “We are therefore continuing to operate on the assumption that he is here until we get information indicating otherwise.”

Bray added “I think the question that’s on the minds of a lot of people today is that now that the long weekend is coming to an end, school is starting tomorrow for the students, what does it look like in terms of community safety?

“I think there are a few things we need to remember – there were some very violent incidents that happened…in northern Saskatchewan,” he explained. “However, since then, no more violence has occurred. There has been no repeat of this violence in our community and there is no indication of a threat of violence in our city.”
