VEGREVILLE, Alta. - Two RCMP officers were injured late Monday in an apparent shooting on a rural property near Vegreville, Alta.

Sgt. Josée Valiquette, a media relations officer for K-Division, said the extent of the officers' injuries was not immediately clear.

"One was not necessarily life-threatening," she said. "We're awaiting word."

But she said three suspects remain at large and are "believed to be armed and dangerous."

The RCMP issued a news release late Monday asking journalists to stay away from the area.

"There's an ongoing situation and we want to make sure no reporters attend that location, as we wouldn't want anybody to get hurt," said Valiquette.

She did not yet have details of exactly what happened but said there would be updates as information became available.
