Police are hunting two men suspected of killing 10 people in a stabbing rampage that devastated an indigenous community in Canada as authorities tried to determine a motive for attacks that shocked a nation where mass violence is rare.

Police launched a manhunt for Damien Sanderson, 31, and Myles Sanderson, 30, after they allegedly stabbed people in 13 different areas across an indigenous community and its surrounding province on Sunday. At least 15 others were wounded.

The attacks in Saskatchewan province were among the deadliest in Canada’s modern history and a statement by indigenous leaders indicated they may have been drug related.

Police said some of the victims appeared to have been targeted, while others were apparently random.

The suspects were last seen traveling in a black Nissan Rogue and spotted on Sunday in the city of Regina, about 320 km south of the attacks in the James Smith Cree Nation and the village of Weldon.

In an update on Monday morning, police said the suspects were still at large and urged residents to call authorities if they had information that could help in tracking the two men.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said his government had been in direct communication with the James Smith Cree Nation leadership, adding, “we are ready to assist in any way we can.”

Police bulletins urged people to take precautions including sheltering in place, while warning against picking up hitchhikers or approaching suspicious people.
