RCMP in the Northwest Territories say the suspect in the stabbing of three people in Fort Good Hope was arrested Thursday evening “without any incident.”
One person died in the Tuesday night attack and two others have significant injuries. They remain in hospital in stable condition.
Supt. Jeffrey Christie said 24-year-old Thaddeus McNeely surrendered to police and was arrested at a residence in the community at 5:45 p.m.
“Right now there’s no ongoing risk, the RCMP do not feel there’s anyone else as a safety risk in the community,” he said.
Earlier Thursday Mounties said McNeely was the lone suspect.
