Assistant Commissioner Rhonda Blackmore, the commanding officer for the Saskatchewan Royal Canadian Mounted Police, said Monday that Damien Sanderson was found dead after leading authorities on a manhunt. His injuries, which she said were “visible,” are not believed to be of a self-inflicted nature. The date and time for examination of his body have yet to be determined.
His brother, Myles Sanderson, is still at large. Blackmore advised that he may have sustained injuries and warned he might try to find medical attention. He is still considered “armed and dangerous” and should not be approached.
The Sunday massacre has left 11 people dead and 19 others injured across 13 crime scenes, according to authorities.
“My thoughts and the thoughts of all Canadians are with those who’ve lost loved ones and with those who are injured,” Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said at a press conference Monday. “This kind of violence or any kind of violence has no place in our country.”
