Police received several reports of stabbings on the James Smith Cree Nation, and within hours the situation developed into a mass stabbing event. At least 10 people were killed and more than a dozen were injured in a stabbing rampage in at least 10 locations in Saskatchewan early Sunday.

STARS Air Ambulance dispatched three helicopters to James Smith Cree Nation during the attack, and several victims were taken to local hospitals by ground ambulances. Multiple dangerous persons alerts were issued by police over the course of the morning. The alert was extended to cover Manitoba and Alberta as the two suspects remained at large.

The Saskatchewan Health Authority said multiple patients were being treated at several sites, including Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon.

The Saskatchewan Roughriders announced increased security personnel at their game against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers Sunday, saying they operate a centralized command center that allows immediate connection to local emergency services.
