Multiple fatalities confirmed after shooting incident in Canada

Police in the eastern city of Fredericton asked people to stay indoors after four people died in an 'incident'. The circumstances of the shooting are unclear at this point.

The Fredericton Firefighters Association was asking people on Facebook not to use social media to report on police locations. Video from the scene broadcast by Canadian network CBC showed emergency vehicles on a residential road, identified by the police as Brookside Drive.

Fredericton is located about 50 miles northeast of the US border with Maine.

The Winnipeg native, who lives immediately off Brookside, said residents have been advised to stay inside with their doors locked.

Some residents say they heard the gunshots just after 7am, and more fired since.
