Canada shooting: Four dead in Fredericton as gunman on the run | Daily Star

The Fredericton Police Department Twitter page says that two of the people killed in the shooting are police officers.

The Canadian prime minister, Justin Trudeau, sent his condolences.

The circumstances of the shooting in the capital of New Brunswick province, home to about 60,000 people, were not immediately clear.

CBC reports that a local Tim Horton's coffee shop has been told to keep their doors locked and their customers and staff inside until further notice. The business is located inside the cordoned off area on Brookside Drive. A follow-up message later confirmed that police were dealing with "multiple fatalities" along Brookside Drive on the north side of the city. "It sounded like it started in the courtyard area", he said.

They said the investigation is ongoing and the suspect is being treated for serious injuries.

Heavily armed police, paramedics and firefighters quickly descended on the scene and a lockdown of the neighborhood was ordered, trapping some early risers in daycare facilities, coffee shops and other businesses.

"It's not something that we expect in Fredericton to wake up and hear about", Henwood said.
