On Sunday 19th of June an RCMP patrol car in La Ronge, Saskatoon was shot at while pursuing two suspects who were initially wanted for speeding on the road. The bullets hit the car’s windshield and pierced through the car’s radiator. The suspects as of the 21st of June were two men; Terrance Daigneault (he also goes by the name Terrance Kenny), aged 29, Allan Sanderson, aged 36, and there was a third unidentified suspect.
According to CBC News, Daigneault was wanted for several charges which are two counts of attempted murder with a firearm, two counts of releasing a firearm with intent, and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose. Along with two counts of unauthorized possession of a firearm, unauthorized possession of a firearm in a motor vehicle, two counts of obstruction, and failure to comply with release order. While Sanderson was wanted for obstruction and unauthorized possession of a firearm in a motor vehicle.
On June 23 rd, an update was provided concerning this case; Daigneault was found and arrested on Wednesday night in Northridge Drive, Saskatoon. However, Sanderson and the third now identified suspect are still being wanted and actively searched for by the RCMP.
The new suspect wanted alongside Sanderson has been identified as Celina Charles, aged 22. She is wanted for obstruction of justice and a warrant has been issued for her arrest. The police believe that she was also in the getaway vehicle and that was how she escaped from them. The police warn the inhabitants of Saskatoon, not to approach or confront them if they see them in public but to call and report their appearance.
The police gave more details surrounding the event that took place on Sunday morning. They said they saw a car speeding down Far Reserve Road on the Lac La Ronge Indian Band. They decided to follow the car and they followed it into the driveway of a home that was nearby. When the vehicle stopped the driver got out of the car and ran away, while another person got out of the car, shot at the patrol car and the RCMP also began shooting.
An emergency alert was issued by the police warning the people in the La Ronge area of the current situation and advising them to stay in their homes and lock their doors to protect themselves, the alert was then later cancelled by the police. The RCMP called the critical response team and 17 people in total were arrested from inside the house, but most of them were eventually released without being charged with anything. The police said that from the shots fired at the patrol car, none of the officers were injured but Daigneault may have sustained an injury from the shots they fired.
