The manhunt continues in Saskatchewan for a second suspect allegedly involved in a shooting and double carjacking in Edmonton Wednesday night.
Edmonton police and Alberta RCMP began the search after a vehicle was stolen and shots were fired at a hotel in the suburb of Sherwood Park, sending one man to the hospital.
Later that night, police responded to a carjacking with a shotgun at a gas station. Both stolen vehicles were found abandoned and one had been set on fire.
On Thursday morning, Maidstone RCMP arrested one man near the community about 56 kilometres southeast of Lloydminster. No charges have been laid at this time.
Officers then started searching farmyards and acreages in the rural areas near Paynton and Maidstone for a second man believed to be on foot.
In a 3:40 p.m. update, RCMP said members will continue searching properties into the evening as part of the investigation.
People can ask for police identification from these members if they wish.
The second suspect is described as being around five feet nine inches tall.
Maidstone RCMP are asking people to stay clear of areas with a heavy police presence and report anything suspicious.
They warn the suspect could be armed and dangerous.
Maidstone is located 84 kilometres west of North Battleford, and around 300 kilometres east of Edmonton.
