Canada grieves after 'horrific' massacre in Cree community

One suspect found dead but his brother remained at large late Monday


September 6, 2022

The first call came into the Royal Canadian Mountain Police dispatch at 5:40 a.m. on Sunday morning of Labor Day weekend. There was a stabbing at the James Smith Cree Nation.

Within minutes, there were many more calls. By the end of the day on Sept. 4, 10 people would be dead and at least 18 injured, mostly on the First Nation reserve and neighboring communities about 135 miles north of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

By noon, the central Canadian prairie province – home to more than a million people in a territory almost as big as Texas – would be put under a state of civil emergency amid a manhunt over three provinces for two brothers suspected in the attacks.
