Several Killed in Canada Shooting

At least four people were killed in a shooting Friday morning in the eastern Canadian city of Fredericton, police said.

After Fredericton police urged people to stay inside and lock their doors over two hours, authorities tweeted that they had one suspect in custody.

Police said the area was "contained for the foreseeable future as the investigation is ongoing."

David MacCoubrey said he awoke in his apartment on Brookside Drive around 7:07 a.m. local time (6:07 a.m. ET) to the sound of gunshots "10 meters from my bed."

MacCoubrey told The Associated Press that three gunshots woke him up, and as many as 17 more have been fired between that time and around 8:30 a.m.

His apartment complex has four buildings in a square, and it sounded like the shots were coming from the middle of the complex, he added. Police continued to search the area.
