Two Mounties Shot
Two members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police are fighting for their lives after a shooting in Saskatchewan, CTV News has confirmed.
The officers, a male and a female, were shot in the town of Mildred late Friday night.
They have been taken to a Saskatoon hospital and are currently undergoing surgery for life-threatening injuries.
The officers were shot while pursuing a suspect in the town located just west of Prince Albert, Sask.
According to reports, three officers were investigating an assault complaint at about 9 p.m. when a suspect fled in a vehicle.
The officers reportedly followed the vehicle, and were fired upon when the suspect stopped.
The third, uninjured officer returned fire on the suspect who then fled on foot and is still on the loose.
Police have set up roadblocks and established a no-fly zone as part of efforts to capture the suspect.
The injured officers are based out of the RCMP detachment in Spiritwood, Sask.
