The Grande Prairie RCMP are investigating multiple stabbings at a bar in Sexsmith that caused one person to die.
Shortly after 1:00 a.m. Sunday, Grande Prairie RCMP responded to a report of a multiple stabbing at a bar in Sexsmith.
Details are very preliminary at this time; however, four people were injured and transported to the hospital where one has subsequently died. At this time, it is not known if the injuries to the other people are life threatening or not.
Grande Prairie RCMP members have secured the scene and the RCMP Major Crimes Unit North is attending in support of the investigation. The RCMP is actively seeking the suspect in this event and assures local residents that there is no cause for public safety concern, as this is not believed to be a random act.
This is the limit of available information at this time; however, further details will be provided later in the day as more details are confirmed.
