Four people, including two police officers, died in a shooting on a residential road in New Brunswick, Canada.
The shooting took place near the Brookside Drive area in the city of Fredericton shortly before 8 a.m. local time on Friday morning.
Police confirmed about two hours later that they had one unnamed 48-year-old suspect in custody, and that he or she was being treated for serious injuries.
Earlier they warned people to "stay in their homes with doors locked." But by 11 a.m. cops said the threat was over.
The two officers were named at an afternoon press conference as 45-year-old Lawrence Robert Costello and 43-year-old Sara Mae Helen Burns. Costello was a 20-year veteran of the force and a father of four. Burns joined the department in 2019 and is survived by her husband and three children.
The two civilian victims were not named but are said to be a man and a woman.
Nick Moore, a reporter at the CTV Atlantic television network, described hearing what sounded like four gunshots over the course of a few minutes. He included this video from the scene:
He also added the police had escorted multiple people from their homes in the area.
Robert Didiodato, who lives nearby, told CBC he heard a series of pops around 7 a.m.
He told the Canadian broadcaster: "With the tempo, it might've been a gunshot. It was sort of like a pop, pop, pop, pop."
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted: "Awful news coming out of Fredericton. My heart goes out to everyone affected by this morning's shooting.
