Thunderblanket, who is wanted on charges of first-degree murder as well as attempted murder in Saskatchewan, has been the subject of a police manhunt since an incident took place on Little Pine First Nation in previous days. According to police, Thunderblanket shot a female officer of the RCMP in the arm near Golden, British Columbia, after a traffic stop on Tuesday afternoon. The officer remains in hospital.

Police were searching throughout the night for Thunderblanket, but were not able to locate him. A stolen vehicle connected to the shooting was located late Tuesday night, outside the community of Revelstoke.
