Sunday’s violent incident led authorities to step up security at the Saskatchewan Roughriders Canadian football game, the team said in a statement posted on Twitter.
“As a result, additional law enforcement personnel have been deployed to Mosaic Stadium and surrounding areas,” the statement said.
“The club operates a centralized command center on matchdays which allows direct connection to local emergency services and the ability to receive up-to-the-minute information in the event of an emergency.”
