Const. Shelby Patton had been following the truck, which was allegedly stolen from Manitoba, before attempting a traffic stop in Wolseley, Sask., at about 8 a.m., Assistant Commissioner Rhonda Blackmore told a news conference.
"No one should have to wake up and learn their family member died as a result of doing their job and this is what happened today to Constable Patton's loved ones". Police allege Alphonse Traverse and Marlene Pagee, both from Winnipeg, are responsible for Patton's death. "Sadly, Const. Patton died at the scene", Blackmore says.

"I am heartbroken for her and her family", Blackmore said. I would like to thank everyone who took the time to let us know they share our grief.
Flags at every RCMP detachment across the province will remain at half-staff until sunset on the day of Patton's funeral, Blackmore said.
