A suspect has died after being arrested by police in a Canadian stabbing that left 10 dead and 18 injured.
Miles Sanderson (32) was arrested by the police on Wednesday, according to the BBC. He was then taken into police custody. He died there.
“Our province is breathing a sigh of relief this (Wednesday) evening,” Assistant Police Commissioner Rwanda Blackmore told a news conference Wednesday night.
He said they learned through a phone call that the accused Sanderson had stolen a car from a house. However, no one was injured during the carjacking.
Then the police sent a warning to the mobile phones of the local residents. The alert says a man is fleeing after stealing a car with a knife.
Various CCTV footages of the road show Sanderson driving on the road at a speed of 150 kilometers per hour. Sanderson was forced to stop the car when police officers surrounded him. Police found a knife inside the car. He was then taken into police custody.
Shortly after being taken into police custody, Sanderson fell ill. He was later admitted to a hospital in Saskatoon. He was pronounced dead shortly after being taken to the hospital.
However, the Assistant Commissioner of Police did not mention any information about the cause of Sanderson’s death. He said that the actual cause of death will be known after the autopsy of Sanderson.
However, a source told the BBC on condition of anonymity that Sanderson was injured before his arrest. So he might have died.
Miles and his brother stabbed 10 people to death this week. Besides, 18 people were injured due to stabbing. The entire world, including Canada, was shocked by that incident. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has assured justice for those involved in the incident.
