A man wanted in connection with a murder on a Saskatchewan First Nation has been captured.
The spokesperson for RCMP in B.C., Staff Sergeant Rob Vermeulen, has confirmed that "at this time we're confirming that our officer sustained a gunshot injury during the circumstances surrounding the initial vehicle stop".
One person in the home was pronounced dead at the scene and the other was taken to hospital with serious injuries.
"He is described as an Aboriginal male, 5'6" tall, 209 lbs with black hair and brown eyes" Moskaluk said.
The suspect in the vehicle refused to cooperate with police and then stole a nearby vehicle and drove away.
The injured RCMP officer remains in hospital.
The city's official Facebook page states Mounties have located Sheldon Kyle Thunderblanket and discontinued the search.
The Highway is closed west of the town while police investigate.
Tootoosis said she noted someone was online using Thunderblanket's Facebook account on Wednesday, even as police were searching Revelstoke, where the stolen auto he was allegedly driving was found.
According to RCMP S/Sgt Rob Vermeulen, earlier today an RCMP officer conducted a vehicle stop on Highway 1, near the weight scales west of Golden, in connection with "a possible theft".
People in Johnson Heights were told to lock their doors and stay inside.
RCMP members from Traffic Services, the Emergency Response Team and Police Dog Services scoured the area throughout the night, and additional resources are being deployed to the area.
Police say traffic is getting through on the Trans Canada Highway both six kilometres east of Revelstoke and near Donald, with a single lane open to alternating traffic in each location.
