Three people have been charged following a report of shots fired at a residence in the City of Lloydminster last week that resulted in a province-wide emergency alert being issued. 

Police say that on September 6, 2022, at approximately 2:45 a.m., they received reports of shots fired at a residence in the city of Lloydminster. Investigators determined the vehicle was a black, newer model Ford Mustang and alerted nearby RCMP detachments to be on the lookout for the vehicle.

At 3:49 a.m., Maidstone RCMP received a report of shots fired at a residence in the RM of Brittania. The investigation determined that a black Mustang approached the residence.

Multiple occupants exited the vehicle and started checking vehicles parked in the driveway. The homeowner came to the door and a firearm was discharged toward the homeowner. The bullets struck the house and the occupants were not physically injured.

Shortly after 4 a.m. Maidstone RCMP received a report that occupants of a black Mustang attempted to steal fuel from a residence in the RM of Britannia.

Around 7 a.m. that morning, Saskatchewan RCMP issued an emergency alert informing the public of this incident. Which resulted in a tip that the suspect vehicle was leaving Lloydminster towards Onion Lake Cree Nation.

The vehicle was located and disabled using a spike belt.

The occupants fled. Two were later located and arrested in a camper in the community, and a third was located and arrested in a forested area close to where the car was disabled.

Later that evening, two more females were located and arrested in the community.

It was determined that the Ford Mustang had been reported as stolen from Paynton, Saskatchewan on September 5.

As a result, 24-year old Blaire Chief from Onion Lake, 19-year old Jessica Fox from Poundmaker Cree Nation and a 15-year-old male youth from North Battleford are each charged with:

- 1 count, resist obstruct peace officer, Section 129(a), Criminal Code

- 1 count, flight from peace officer, Section 320.13, Criminal Code

- 1 count, possession of property obtained by crime over $5000, Section 354(1)(a), Criminal Code.

Fox and the male youth will appear in Battleford Provincial Court on September 9. Chief will appear in Battleford Provincial Court on September 12.

Two individuals arrested were released without charges. Maidstone RCMP continues to investigate these incidents.
