    Police say they have interviewed and released a possible suspect.

    People in the area are being asked to step forward with any surveillance video at the time of the occurrence.

    “This is a situation where this is a “who-done-it,” said Saskatoon police spokesperson Alyson Edwards.

    “They don’t have a lot of information, there isn’t an obvious suspect and so they’re hoping that perhaps some video was captured, perhaps somebody out there knows something, heard something, saw something and comes forward to let us know.”

    According to police, often times with violent crime investigations, a number of tips can help officers piece together what happened.

    Anyone with information is asked to contact Saskatoon police at 306-975-8300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
