Sask. RCMP arrest 1 man connected to shooting, carjackings near Edmonton

RCMP are warning the public about several armed and risky individuals accused of a crime spree that went through Edmonton, Sherwood Park, Vegreville and crossed over into Saskatchewan.

Police say Jeremy Buffin, who is 29, was arrested near Maidstone Thursday morning.

Edmonton police began following the black Ford Fusion, and notified Strathcona County RCMP that the auto appeared to be fleeing to Sherwood Park at about 12:30 a.m.

On Thursday morning, RCMP in Maidstone arrested one man near the Saskatchewan community.

The accused was due to appear in North Battleford provincial court Friday morning on a number of charges, including robbery with a weapon, two counts of possession of a weapon for a risky objective and flight from police.

Around the same time, RCMP officers were responding to a report of shots fired in Alberta's Sherwood Park, at the Holiday Inn Express on Broadmoor Boulevard.

RCMP found both stolen vehicles including one that had been set on fire. A man was found at that scene suffering from gunshot wounds to his shoulder and neck. Police said the stolen Ford Fusion and the stolen Chrysler 300 fled the gas station towards the Alberta-Saskatchewan border.

The Chrysler 300 was later seen traveling at a high rate of speed through the Vegreville area before being located in Saskatchewan.

"A truck with one officer in it and it was parked right at the cross road", Checkosis said.

Saskatchewan RCMP say they have scaled back their search for a second suspect but are warning people in the area not to lower their guard.

At least two schools in the area - Chief Little Pine School and Chief Poundmaker School - were locked down, and the lobby of the Paynton post office was locked because of the incident. Police are asking the public to report any suspicious activity to their local police service.

According to the RCMP news release, the situation began last night in the Edmonton Police Service and Alberta RCMP area, and the individuals involved may be armed and are considered unsafe.
