On July 10, 2022, at approximately 1:00 p.m., officers of the St. Paul RCMP detachment were making patrols when they observed a vehicle with an occupant that appeared to be pointing a firearm at another occupant near the intersection of North-South Road and North East 4 Road on Saddle lake Cree Nation. Officers attempted to stop the vehicle however the vehicle fled and a pursuit was initiated. During the pursuit, occupants of the vehicle fired 2 or more rounds from a firearm at pursuing officers with one police vehicle being struck.

Eventually, the suspect vehicle became stuck in a field and St. Paul RCMP was able to arrest all occupants without further incident. St. Paul RCMP Integrated Traffic Unit and the Eastern Alberta Crime Reduction Unit officers deployed to the area to assist with the investigation.
