At least 4 people dead in shooting, Canadian police say

The Fredericton Police Department Twitter page says that two of the people killed in the shooting are police officers.

The incident in Fredericton comes a little over a week after two people were killed and 15 injured when a man went on a shooting spree in Toronto, Canada's biggest city.

Officers have shut down a road and are asking residents to stay inside and away from their windows because the incident is ongoing.

During the incident, officers urged the public to avoid the area and stay in their homes, keeping their doors locked.

Fredericton is the capital of New Brunswick province and home to around 56,000 people.

Local TV reporter Nick Moore, from CTV Atlantic, tweeted that he heard four gunshots.

"Police still have the crime scene contained, and will be working the investigation for some time", the Fredricton Police said in a tweet.

Robert DiDiodato lives on Oakland Avenue, which connects to Brookside Drive along the city's north side.

He said he heard two gunshots, and then three more.

The CBC says people have started to be escorted to safety by police.

"We had to lock all the main doors, and we did put them in a room that had no windows and we shut off the lights", she said.

Growing gun violence in recent years has been an issue in Toronto, Canada's most populous city.

Though Canada doesn't have the level of gun violence as the USA, the country has shootings. MacCoubrey added that it sounded as if the gunfire was coming from the middle of the square in his apartment complex.

Multiple fatalities have been reported after an early morning shooting in Fredericton, New Brunswick.

Scott Hill said he was taking his dog on a morning walk by the golf course when an employee told him to get inside because of the shooter.

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