Melfort, Saskatchewan — Two people have died and another has been hospitalized after a shooting in an indigenous people in Saskatchewan, and a manhunt is underway.

The RCMP of the Detachment in Melfort, Saskatchewan issued an emergency alert shortly after shooting James Smith First Nations on Sunday evening, but lifted it on Monday morning.

Police said the shooting took place during a quarrel at the community’s home, about 180 kilometers northeast of Saskatoon.

They say a man and a woman were killed and another man was taken to the hospital with unconfirmed injuries, but did not disclose the names of the victims.

Police are currently searching for 33-year-old Sean Mustose, who they say is known to the victims.

Mounties says a mousse, 6 feet tall, with brown hair and eyes, and a scar on his left hand, which is said to be about 190 pounds, may be driving a white 2003 Pontiac Montana.

They insist that the suspect may be armed and should not be approached, but urge the public to contact police for information about his whereabouts.

The search for Moostoos involves Saskatoon officers and multiple RCMP detachments.
