Sunday morning RCMP in La Ronge, Sask. said the patrol car had been shot at during the chase. The bullets hit the windshield of the car and pierced the radiator.
The RCMP is also still looking for two more people charged in connection with the shooting. Allan Sanderson, 36, is wanted for obstruction and unauthorized possession of a firearm in a vehicle.
In addition, Selina Charles, 22, was charged with obstructing traffic and a warrant was issued for her arrest. Police said they believe Charles was inside a suspicious vehicle and managed to escape.
Selina Charles is 5’4″ and weighs 112 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. She has a rose tattoo on her left arm, a heart and flame tattoo on her left arm, and a tattoo of the word Charles on her chest.
The police warn the public that they should not approach any of the people if they are spotted, and instead call the police.
“The Saskatchewan RCMP is working tirelessly to find and arrest those responsible,” Supt said. Ted Munro, Saskatchewan RCMP North Commander, in a press release.
“The community and leadership must work in partnership with us to discourage and prevent criminal activity at all levels, including providing advice and information on the whereabouts of these wanted individuals.”
The Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Peoples (FSIN) also spoke out on the matter, asking the three suspects to surrender.
“We don’t want the violence to continue, and we don’t want anyone to get hurt or worse,” Vice Chief Dutch Lerat said.
“We encourage these young people to peacefully surrender and turn to our spirituality for traditional healing.”
The RCMP said the incident began on Sunday morning after officers saw a car speeding down Far Reserve Road on the Lac-la-Ronge Indian Strip.
The patrol car chased him and drove to the entrance to a neighboring house.
After the car stopped, the driver got out of the car and ran away, police said. The RCMP reported that a second person got out of the vehicle and started shooting at the patrol car, while the RCMP also exchanged fire.
An RCMP Critical Incident Response Team was called in and 17 people were eventually arrested inside the house, with most eventually being released without charge.
An emergency alert was issued and people in the La Ronge area were ordered to stay in their homes and lock their doors. The warning was eventually canceled by the police.
Police said Denyo may have been injured during the incident. The officers were not hurt.
