Hunt for suspect in Saskatchewan after separate armed carjackings in Alberta

By The Canadian Press on October 12, 2017.

EDMONTON – An RCMP tactical team is combing an area around a town in west-central Saskatchewan for a suspect wanted in two carjackings and a shooting in the Edmonton region.

Mounties say they are searching farms and land near Maidstone after arresting a man Thursday morning.

RCMP were warning people to avoid the area for their own safety.

Mounties say a man was shot near a hotel outside Edmonton earlier in the day who was sent to hospital with non-life-threatening wounds.

Police say the suspects hijacked two cars at gunpoint, including one in Edmonton.

One of the vehicles was later found in flames on Highway 16 east of Edmonton and the other was found in Saskatchewan.
