The Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) says there are ten patients who remain in the hospital following a stabbing spree in James Smith Cree Nation and nearby Weldon, Sask., on Sept. 4. Three people are in critical condition and seven people in stable condition.
According to the SHA, seven people have been released from the hospital. SHA also says it will not be releasing the names of the hospitals where patients are staying, due to privacy concerns.
Nicole Moostoos confirmed to APTN News that her mother, Arlene Moostoos, is currently in the ICU as one of the injured.
Moostoos says she is “just trying to cope” at the moment and “praying that her mom will recover”.
RCMP began receiving calls near 6 a.m. Sunday morning from James Smith Cree Nation. Throughout the day police searched for Damien Sanderson and Myles Sanderson.
