Police in Fredericton, New Brunswick have identified the two police officers killed in Friday morning’s shooting.

Fredericton Police Chief Leanne Fitch says the two officers who fell are Robb Costello, 45, and Sara Burns, 43.

The other two victims have not been publicly identified, but police say they are an adult man and an adult woman. A local hospital has reported treating an unknown number of victims, though police have not confirmed how many people were injured in the shooting.

The incident occurred early Friday morning at an apartment complex on Brookside Dr. in the city’s north end.

Witnesses say they were awakened around 7am local time by the sound of gun shots. More gun shots were fired since then. Police immediately put the area on lockdown and asked residents to stay away. The lockdown was lifted around 11am.

Officers surrounded the area and tried to talk to the suspect. A 48-year-old man was taken into custody about two hours later.  He is being treated for serious injuries.

Fredericton Mayor Mike O’Brien expressed his condolences to the families and friends of the victims.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also weighed in on the incident.

A prayer vigil for the victims is set for 7pm local time Friday at St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church in north Fredericton.
