HOUSTON – It was an extremely violent night in Saskatoon when police reported that at least nine people were shot and three were killed in five different shootings.

MLK shooting

A teenager was killed and three other people were injured in a shooting in the 5990 block of Martin Luther King Boulevard early Saturday morning.

Saskatoon Police said there was a large crowd gathered outside a club. At some point a fight broke out and a person started shooting in the air.

That was when several people started shooting, police said.

Initially, the investigators only thought that two people had been shot by first responders and taken to the hospital. They later learned that a woman was shot dead by a private vehicle and taken to a nearby hospital and a man was shot in the leg and taken to a nearby fire station.

One of the people who were taken to the hospital by first responders was a 16 year old. He died later in hospital.

The police did not say whether there were any suspects in custody. This scene is still being investigated.
