'Lock your doors': At least four dead in Canada shooting

A shooting in Fredericton, N.B. early on August 10 has left four people dead, including two police officers.

Residents said they heard as many as 20 gunshots following a confrontation that prompted police to initially cordon off a large section of the city with emergency vehicles and order residents to remain inside their homes and businesses.

Fredericton Police confirmed on Twitter that "at least four people killed" in the incident.

"I couldn't leave my dog behind", Kennedy said, sitting and trembling in her apartment.

Bouquets of flowers and notes of condolences amassed outside the Fredericton police station, while a local church scheduled a prayer vigil for Friday evening.

"As someone who was so kind, such an asset to the police force and such a good person, so loved by his friends and family, to see them taken away, I think it hits everyone who knew him very hard", he said.

The police urged people to stay inside and lock doors.

Three Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers were killed and two more were wounded in 2014 in Moncton, New Brunswick.

Friday's shooting occurred three weeks after a gunman walked down a busy Toronto street, killing two people and wounding 13 before killing himself.

He said that about five minutes later he could hear similar sounds near his home.

Residents reported hearing more gunshots as police arrived at the suburb to the north of the city. While staff said they kept the doors locked, the kids carried on with normal life, playing with toys or watching a movie as the police investigation unfolded.

Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau said: "Awful news coming out of Fredericton".

Gun laws are more stringent in Canada than in the United States, but the number of shootings has nonetheless risen in recent years.

Sara Burns, 43, joined the Fredericton Police Force in 2016 but previously served as an auxiliary officer for two years.

Elizabeth Hanton, a local resident who has lived in the area for almost 30 years, said some residents may have mistaken the sounds of gunshots for those of local construction crews, which have been working in the area for weeks.

The hospital tweeted at 11:06 a.m. that it was treating multiple victims of the shooting, but Gaudet did not confirm that anyone else had been shot at the scene. "During this hard time, our thoughts are also with the courageous women and men on the front lines working to keep us safe", Gallant said.
