At Least Four Killed in Canada Shooting

At Least Four Killed in Canada Shooting

At least four people have been shot dead in eastern Canada.

Police said on Twitter that the Brookside Drive area on the city's north side would be blocked off for the forseeable future as "the investigation is ongoing". It was not immediately clear what caused the shooting.

Canadian Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale told reporters he could not discuss details of the latest shooting.

"More information will be available when we can confirm", Fredericton police tweeted.

A suspect is in custody as police continue to investigate the incident, but no names are being released at this time.

Public broadcaster CBC quoted Robert DiDiodato, who lives in the area, as saying he heard a series of "firecracker" sounds around 7 am.

Police have also confirmed that they have one suspect in custody.

It was a rare instance of gun violence in the Canadian province of New Brunswick.

DiDiotato added, "With the tempo, it might have been a gunshot".

Tim Morehouse, another resident of the complex, said he heard someone shout: "Shut up!"

"This is the first time I've even heard of any serious crime or violent crime in this city", said Travis Hrubeniuk, whose fiancee had just left their home when the sirens began. Police said there is no further threat and people don't need to remain locked down.

"My heart goes out to everyone affected by this morning's shooting".

"This sort of thing never happens here", Hill said.

Police are warning individuals to avoid the area, but say the situation has been contained.

"All of Canada stands with the two fearless Fredericton Police officers who lost their lives protecting their community today".
