Myles Sanderson, the second suspect wanted in connection with a deadly stabbing spree in Saskatchewan, Canada, has died after going into medical distress after his arrest Wednesday, according to Royal Canadian Mounted Police officials.

“Myles Sanderson was located and taken into police custody near Rosthern, SK at approximately 3:30 p.m. today,” according to Canada’s Global News.

Authorities had been searching for the suspect since Sunday when he and his brother, Damien Sanderson, went on a slashing spree that left 10 people dead and 18 wounded in the small indigenous village of Weldon.

Damien Sanderson was found dead from wounds “not believed to be self-inflicted” on the James Smith Cree Nation property where the violence began, Royal Canadian Mounted Police said Sunday.

The surviving Sanderson is charged with three counts of first-degree murder, attempted murder and breaking and entering. Authorities told locals on Wednesday to be on the lookout for a stolen white Chevy Avalanche. That alert has been canceled.

Saskatchewan Health Authority reportedly said that 10 victims remain hospitalized, with two of them in critical condition.
