Canada: 4 Dead, Several Injured In Mass Shooting


A mass shooting which occurred in eastern city of Fredericton, Canada has left four people including two local police officers dead and several others injured as confirmed by the police.

Though the suspect has been arrested, however Canadian broadcaster CBC said that the shooting happened in a residential area of the city north of downtown, and that heavily-armed police, paramedics and firefighters were on the scene.  CBC quoted Robert DiDiodato, who lives in the area, as saying he heard a series of “firecracker” sounds around 7 am.

“With the tempo, it might’ve been a gunshot,” he said. “It was sort of like a pop, pop, pop, pop.”

Police also pleaded with social media users to refrain from detailing the position or activities of police or first responders online.
