On Sunday, September 4, 2022, two men, Damien Sanderson, and Myles Sanderson, allegedly killed 10 people and wounded at least 15 others in the Western province of Saskatchewan in Canada.

The attacks took place at 13 different locations on the James Smith Cree Nation band and the nearby town of Weldon, located in the northern part of the province.

All the victims were stabbed and while some seemed targeted, others appeared to be completely random. It has become one of the largest mass murders in Canadian history.

One of the suspects, Myles Sanderson, who was out on parole after serving a five-year sentence for assault and robbery, has been wanted by police since May after he stopped meeting with his parole officer.
