VEGREVILLE, Alta. - Two RCMP officers have been injured in what police are terming an "ongoing situation" near Vegreville, Alta.

Sgt. Josée Valiquette, a media relations officer for K-Division, says the extent of the officers' injuries is not yet clear.

She says 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.

Valiquette says the unusual request came because "we wouldn't want anybody to get hurt."
