Fredericton residents pay their respects at a makeshift shrine created in front of police headquarters after four people, including two police officers, were killed in a shooting in Fredericton, the capital of the province of New Brunswick, Canada, August 10, 2018.

Police have not given full details of the incident but witnesses told media that officers were called to a low-rise, four-building apartment complex on Brookside Drive, in the north of the city, at about 07:00 (10:00 GMT) on Friday.

He is accused of killing Const. Lawrence Robert (Robb) Costello, 45, and Const. Sara Mae Helen Burns, 43, as well as Fredericton residents Donald Adam Robichaud, 42, and Bobbie Lee Wright, 32.

The Dr. Everett Chalmers Regional Hospital in Fredericton issued at tweet at 11:06 a.m., that it was treating multiple victims of the shooting.

"I'm very torn up", he said.

Police say the names of the shooting victims are not yet being released.

Ralph Goodale, while in Sarnia at a federal building dedication, said he couldn't comment on specifics of what happened in New Brunswick with the investigation in the early stages.

During a news conference Friday afternoon, police said officers responded to Brookside Drive shortly after 7 a.m. after receiving a report of shots fired in the area. "We will not forget the two fallen police officers whose sacrifice no doubt saved lives and prevented even greater tragedy".

"I saw an armoured vehicle out in the courtyard and I opened up my window to see if I could hear anything and the shots started again", he said.

He said there had been fights in the apartment complex, but never anything like this.

Police said the area would be blocked off for the foreseeable future as "the investigation is ongoing". I'm angry. I don't like the violence.

Earlier on Friday, Fredericton police said that two of those killed were police officers. "Thank you for ALL that you do!".

Flowers, teddy bears and messages of support are piling up outside the police station in Fredericton.

Across Canada, many police forces have lowered their flags to half-mast. The Fredericton Police Force subsequently declared via Twitter that there was "no further threat to the public". "We grieve as one".

They did not release information about a possible motive or the weapon.

"I couldn't be prouder of the men and women that serve this city", she said, adding her thoughts and prayers are with the victims' families. "This morning, first responders rushed to the scene of danger".

"The people of Fredericton are courageous, strong, and resilient".

A vigil was to be held Friday evening at St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church.

The quiet residential neighbourhood, dominated by houses, grocery stores, a church and an elementary school, is the last place Hrubeniuk said he expected to encounter a risky situation.

Officers went to a residential complex at about 7 a.m. but there's no word yet on what led them to the area.

In June 2014, RCMP Constables Doug Larche, Fabrice Gevaudan and Dave Ross were killed in a shooting rampage by Justin Bourque.

The latter triggered a public debate on rising gun violence and gangs in Canadian cities, and calls for a handgun ban.
