FORT ERIE, Ont. — Two people have died after an attempted murder on the Niagara River that local police say also sent a child to hospital on Friday evening.

Niagara Regional Police say they responded to a report of three people in the water in distress near the area of Jarvis Street and Niagara Boulevard in Fort Erie, Ont., around 6:30 p.m.

They say a bystander was able to pull a 29-year-old woman from the water, and she was taken to hospital in critical condition, where she later died.

A child who was also rescued was taken to a local hospital and remains in stable condition.

Investigators were initially looking for the third person in the water — a 28-year-old man who was wanted on charges of attempted murder and breach of probation.

Police say the attempted murder charge was in relation to the child.

RCMP to release report today on B.C. homicides that sparked massive manhunt .
SURREY, B.C. — The investigative findings from the homicides of three people in British Columbia are being released today by the RCMP, more than seven weeks after the bodies of two teenage suspects were found in the wilderness of northern Manitoba. Bryer Schmegelsky, who was 18, and 19-year-old Kam McLeod were the subject of a two-week manhunt that spanned Western Canada. Before their deaths, the teens were charged with the murder of Leonard Dyck, a University of British Columbia botany lecturer, and were also suspects in the deaths of American Chynna Deese and her Australian boyfriend Lucas Fowler.
