At least four people were killed in a shooting Friday in Fredericton, Canada, police said.
The Fredericton Police Department tweeted Friday morning to caution residents to avoid Brookside Drive due to an "ongoing incident." Later, police confirmed four people had been killed in the incident. It was not immediately clear what caused the shooting.

This is nonpossible.
Someone pulled the trigger multiple times.
...if they just had a comprehensive gun registry.....
Unless they can show that a person did it, I'm going with Rap Music.
Probably a lot of fog and confusion caused be the screams of, "Allah ackbar." I'm sure police will find a cause once things settle down a bit.
My prediction about what happen in Fredericton would only speculation.
You wonder how the narrative will be spun about this once they find out who the perp(s) were, what was used (handgun or standard rifle or shotgun), etc? Justin’s response (or lack thereof) to the Danforth incident last month did not look good and he certainly did not turn in what you would call a great performance with the Saudis, so things like that will likely be a factor as well.
There will surely be some noise about Maine’s (which is nearby) lax gun laws.
Another triumph for the “common-sense gun laws” the loons want to enact here.
Can’t happen - they have gun control!
Per the local PD’s Twitter feed, PD has a suspect in custody.
8 am near downtown. I predict an abusive ex-spouse killing wife and co-workers.
Wonder if it has anything to do with Canada’s rapidly escalating spat with Saudi Arabia.
Yet when one compare’s Canada’s Maritime provinces to the neighbouring U.S. states, this is what Wikipedia reveals:
2016 homicide rates for the Maritimes:
New Brunswick: 1.45/100,000 people
Nova Scotia: 1.37/100,000
Prince Edward Island: 0
Neighbouring or nearby American states for 2016:
Maine: 1.5/100,000 people (1.6/100,000 in 2014)
New Hampshire: 1.3/100,000 (0.9/100,000 in 2014)
Vermont: 2.2/100,000 (1.6/100,000 in 2014)
Massachusetts (note with stricter laws than the above three states) 2.0/100,000 (2.0/100,000 in 2014 as well).
It is quite common for neighbouring U.S. states to have homicide rates close to (or even in a few instances lower) than the neighbouring Canadian provinces and that many of these states (excluding New York and Massachusetts) have very casual firearms laws (particularly the Vermont/New Hampshire/Maine region even after Vermont recently adopted some nominal restrictions and that that was not done without a great deal of controversy).
“8 am near downtown. I predict an abusive ex-spouse killing wife and co-workers.”
It would be rather early in the morning for a jihadi immigrant on the public dole to be out of bed.
Why, GUNS, of course!
Canada is very pro-active in covering up terrorism. It only succeeds in making every incident suspect. A factual void fuels rumor and speculation.
