"Our community members shouldn't have to be fearful of the thoughtless actions of those who choose to participate in criminal activity. This past weekend, people's lives were put on hold by an emergency alert, which is reserved for the most serious of incidents. Community events were cancelled, businesses closed and residents sheltered in the safety of their homes. The threat was real: there's evidence multiple bullets struck a responding RCMP vehicle and charges of attempted murder were laid," says Supt. Ted Munro, Saskatchewan RCMP North District Commander. "The Saskatchewan RCMP is working tirelessly to locate and arrest those responsible. The community and leadership must work in partnership with us to discourage and prevent criminal activity on all levels – this includes providing tips and information on the whereabouts of these wanted individuals. We urge you – Celine, Terrance and Allan – please safely turn yourselves in. If the public has information, report it to police or anonymously through Crime Stoppers."

Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations represents 74 First Nations in Saskatchewan. FSIN Vice Chief Dutch Lerat, responsible for the Justice Portfolio, and the Executive of the FSIN, are deeply concerned for the wellbeing of the entire community, which includes our First Nations, our RCMP members, and the young men who are currently wanted for this incident. "We do not want to see continued violence and we do not want anyone hurt, or worse. We urge these young men to turn themselves in peacefully and seek our spirituality for traditional healing; your Family loves you and your Federation will be there for you", states Vice Chief Lerat.
