Default 2 police officers among 4 dead after shooting in Fredericton

Quote:
Two Fredericton police officers are among four confirmed dead and one person is in custody following an early-morning shooting in a residential area.

A tweet by police said no names were being released. "Please appreciate this is a difficult time for their families and our colleagues. We will provide more [information] when we can."
Awful news, Heart goes out to the families of the officers and other victims.

Costello, a 20-year veteran of the Fredericton police. Costello is survived by his four children and partner Jackie McLean, who'd been with him for four years.

Burns, 43, was identified later on as the second officer to die in the shooting attack. She is survived by her husband, Steven Burns, and three children. Burns has been a constable with the Fredericton police since March 2016. The two-year veteran went back to school at the age of 35 to study criminology at St. Thomas University, and later attended the Atlantic Police Academy. Her husband, Steven, is the founder of the Fredericton-based IT firm, Bulletproof.

The two civilians who were killed have yet to be identified. The number of people currently being treated in hospital for injuries related to the shooting is also unknown. A Fredericton hospital only said it was treating "multiple victims."

The police currently have a 48-year-old, Fredericton-based man in custody who they say is recovering from serious injuries. The suspect's parents told The Canadian Press that their son suffered from severe mental illness.
