RCMP have issued warrants for the arrest of two La Ronge men in connection with a firearms incident in Lac La Ronge.
Two La Ronge RCMP officers were conducting patrols on Far Reserve Road when a black car sped past their vehicle and turned into a driveway. The driver fled the area on foot and a second man exited the vehicle and allegedly fired in the direction of the RCMP vehicle and an officer standing outside, striking the windshield and front radiator. RCMP say the officer returned fire.
More officers arrived on scene and a total of 17 people were arrested from the home and car, with 15 of them determined not to be involved and released without charges.
RCMP are searching for the two men who initially interacted with police, Terrance Daigneault and Allan Sanderson. Both should be considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached.
Daigneault, 29 (who also goes by Terrance Kenny), has been charged with:
- Two counts of attempted murder with firearm
- Two counts of discharge firearm with intent
- Possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose
- Two counts of unauthorized possession of a firearm
- Unauthorized possession of a firearm in a motor vehicle
- Failing to comply with a release order
- Two counts of obstruction
Daigneault is described as about 5’8” tall and 180 lbs., with a medium build and brown eyes and brown hair. He has a tattoo on his right forearm that says No regrets and one on his left hand that says Kenny.
RCMP say he is the man in the photo released earlier this week in connection with the incident. He was last seen wearing black shoes, black pants, a black long sleeved shirt with gold designs down both sleeves. Police say he may be injured.
Sanderson, 36, is charged with obstruction and unauthorized possession of a firearm in a motor vehicle. He’s described as about 5’4” tall, and 134 lbs. with a slender build, brown eyes and black hair. He was last seen wearing black shoes, black pants and a black T-shirt with a white logo on the back.
Police say they are known to frequent the Saskatoon, La Ronge, Ile-a-la-Crosse, Beauval and Buffalo Narrows areas. Police do not know if the two are currently together or if they have access to vehicles.
Anyone with tips or information related to the investigation, including anyone able to able to identify the male suspect, is asked to contact La Ronge RCMP at 306-425-6730, 310-RCMP or 911 in an emergency.
