No known threats in Sask. after Edmonton attack

Edmonton Police Service homicide detectives are investigating after a man's body was dug up from under a garage near 118 Avenue and 96 Street in north

A suspect has been charged in an attack in which an Edmonton officer was stabbed and four people were injured when they were hit by a rental truck fleeing police.

Along with the attempted murder charges, Sharif is also charged with risky driving, criminal flight causing bodily harm and possession of a weapon for a unsafe objective.

Although police have described the incident as a suspected terrorist act, terrorism charges have not been laid.

Canada defended its immigration and refugee vetting system on Monday after a Somali immigrant, who had drawn scrutiny for his alleged extremist views, was charged with attempted murder for a weekend auto and knife attack that injured five.

Saturday night's incident unfolded over several hours after a man drove a white Malibu through a roadblock and hit a police officer directing traffic outside a CFL football game, then stabbed the officer multiple times with a large knife.

Police set up checkpoints and began stopping cars, leading to a second encounter with the suspect, now driving a U-Haul cube van, east of the stadium just after midnight.

"From all indications it appears that this was a single individual acting alone", said Knecht.

Chernyk is out of hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.


But Marlin Degrand, assistant commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, said the suspect was a Somali national seeking refugee status in Canada.

Sharif was accused of stabbing 48-year-old Constable Mike Chernyk, after Sharif ran into the police officer with his Chevy Malibu vehicle. Two suffered head injuries including a skull fracture. Police used a flashbang to distract the driver.

Of the four people hit by the truck, two had been released from care as of Sunday afternoon, while the other two remained in hospital.

"We go on the information we have at the time", said Cardoso.

Conservative Pierre Paul-Hus questioned Mr. Goodale in the House of Commons on Monday, saying "Canadians need to know which information the RCMP had on this individual to undertake the investigation".

Degrand initially said was the suspect was the process of making a refugee claim in Canada, but a spokesman with the federal Public Safety Department later clarified that he had already been found to be a refugee by the Immigration and Refugee Board.

A lone gunman, identified by police as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, fired shots into the crowd at a country music festival on the Vegas Strip, killing at least 50 and wounding at least 400 more late Sunday night.
