Myles Sanderson is the second suspect in the multiple stabbing in Saskatchewan, Canada, so the police put an end to the persecution that took place in three provinces

Police have captured Myles Sanderso, named as one of two suspects accused of fatally stabbing 10 people in and around a Saskatchewan Indian community.

According to Canadian authorities, it was reported that the suspect in the mass stabbing was arrested in the city of Rosthern, Saskatech, this Wednesday, around 2:30 p.m. (local time).

Following the announcement, the police stated that “There is no longer a risk to public safety in connection with this investigation.”

For now, the investigation is focused on understanding the motive that may have led the brothers, Myles and Damien Sanderson, to launch their wave of violence that seemed to include both specific victims and random people, authorities said.

Damien Sanderson was found dead at the James Smith Cree Nation in Saskatchewan at 11:30 a.m. Monday with visible injuries not believed to have been self-inflicted, police said.

In addition to the 10 murders, Myles and Damian Sanderson injured 18 people during their attacks that spanned 13 crime scenes.

Myles Sanderson was on the run and serving a four-year sentence for assault and robbery. Additionally, court records indicate that seven years ago, he attacked and stabbed one of the victims who died in the weekend rampage.

Parallel to the arrest, the forensic office revealed who are the victims of the mass stabbings recorded on Sunday in an indigenous community and its surroundings in Canada; act that shook a country that is not used to these attacks.

Among the dead are men and women between the ages of 23 and 78. The authorities also reported that among the 18 injured there is a teenager, the rest are adults.
