Police say they have surrounded a building in Sturgeon Landing, Sask., and are in contact with Jonas Budd, the man at the centre of an Amber Alert earlier this week.

Budd is wanted in connection with the fatal shooting Wednesday of Justin Bird, 17. He's also accused of abducting his ex-spouse's daughter, 17, the incident that led to police issuing the alert.

As of 11 a.m. CST Thursday, Budd was not yet in police custody, but they were talking to him.

Sturgeon Landing is close to the Manitoba border, about 120 kilometres south of Flin Flon.
