Police in Fredericton say at least four people have been killed in a shooting just outside the downtown core early Friday, and they’re urging the public to stay inside and lock their doors.
According to the force’s Twitter account, police units responded to an “ongoing incident” on Brookside Drive at around 7:30 a.m.
“The public is asked to avoid the area and stay in their homes with doors locked at this time for their safety,” police posted on social media.
Police are asking people to avoid the area of Brookside Drive between main and Ring Road.
They’re also asking people to refrain from calling the police station because of the high volume of calls. In the case of emergency, people should call 911.
Halifax Regional Police Chief Jean-Michel Blais says he has spoken to Fredericton Police Force’s chief to offer any support they need.
