Four people were injured in three different locations in a shooting Monday evening on the O’Chiese First Nation in Alberta.

In a release, RCMP said it responded to a shooting around 5:30 p.m. MT.  After discovering the injured, the RCMP’s emergency response team was deployed.

Police said all four victims suffered non-life threatening injuries. Residents were initially asked by police to remain indoors due to “an active threat to the community.” 

Two suspects have been taken into custody and police say they believe the threat to the community is over.

Identities of the victims and suspects are not currently being released, police said. More details are expected once charges have been laid.

The O’Chiese First Nation is about 225 kilometres southwest of Edmonton.
