Second Canada stabbings suspect dead after arrest
Canadian stabbings suspect Myles Sanderson has been killed after being arrested.
Myles Sanderson, 32, was taken into custody Wednesday afternoon following a high-speed chase on a highway in Saskatchewan, police said.
Footage from the scene shows a white SUV running off the road and being surrounded by a police cruiser near Rosthern Town.
Police chased his vehicle, Sanderson fleeing at speeds of up to 150 km/h (93 mph). They forced his vehicle into a ditch and officers found a knife in the SUV when they arrested him, the police chief said.

He added that shortly after his arrest, Sanderson went into “medical distress” and was taken to a hospital in Saskatoon, where he was pronounced dead. He did not provide further details, saying his cause of death would be determined after the postpartum.
“Our province is breathing a collective sigh of relief this evening,” Assistant Commissioner Rhonda Blackmore told a news conference Wednesday night after Sanderson’s death.
