A 48-year-old Fredericton man faces four counts of first-degree murder in a shooting that left two police officers and two civilians dead.
Police say Matthew Vincent Raymond is accused of killing Bobbie Lee Wright, Donnie Robichaud , and Fredericton Police Constables Robb Costello and Sara Burns Friday morning.
Police haven’t said if the accused knew any of the deceased.
One report says the shooter was perched on the third floor of the apartment building and fired at the parking lot where the two civilians and two police officers were killed.
Fredericton’s Pride parade will go ahead today as scheduled, despite the fatal shooting two days ago of four people in the New Brunswick capital.
Mayor Mike O’Brien says the parade is a way for the city’s residents to start rebuilding their faith in community by celebrating diversity, culture and pride.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will also be in the city today to meet with police officers and their families and to attend the Pride festivities.
