Canada: Multiple deaths in New Brunswick shooting incident

On Jul 22, a gunman walked down a busy Toronto street, killing two people and wounding 13 others before turning his weapon on himself.

"But it started before then", she said.

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

Police say they have one suspect in custody. "Being on lockdown was very freaky because I leave my door unlocked most of the time". "I was hoping for the two seconds that I was groggy that it was kids blowing off firecrackers".

"Doors are locked and everybody's inside", he said, according to CBC.

Bouquets of flowers and notes of condolences amassed outside the Fredericton police station, while a local church scheduled a prayer vigil for Friday evening. It's unclear at this time if there are more suspects.

Police continue to on scene of a shooting on Brookside Drive.

David MacCoubrey says he awoke in his apartment on Brookside Drive around 7:07 a.m.

He described seeing police escorting people from their homes and said one woman had told him she heard what sounded like multiple gunshots just after 7am local time.

Mike Pence launches plans for Space Force as new military service
If Congress gives the green light to Space Force , the sixth branch of the military could officially be formed as early as 2020. The last time the USA created a new uniformed military service was in 1947, when the Air Force was launched after World War II.

Police have since confirmed "there is no further threat to the public", and said lockdowns were no longer required.

McLean said Costello had planned to retire in the next six to seven years.

Fredericton police are asking residents to avoid the area and stay in their homes.

"It's not something that we expect in Fredericton to wake up and hear about", Henwood said. "During this hard time, our thoughts are also with the courageous women and men on the front lines working to keep us safe".

For some, the terror began from the moment they opened their eyes.

The crime scene is contained and officers expect to be working on the investigating for some time.

A vigil was held Friday evening where more than 100 mourners packed into St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church.

In June 2014, RCMP Constables Doug Larche, Fabrice Gevaudan and Dave Ross were killed in a shooting rampage by Justin Bourque. Three officers were killed. The shooting spree led to a 28-hour manhunt, and shocked the nation.
