In 2014, three officers were killed and two more were wounded in Moncton, New Brunswick, 121 miles from Fredericton, in one of the worst incidents in Canada.

Gaudet says a 48-year old man with serious injuries was arrested.

Police in Fredericton are asking anyone with photos or video footage of the fatal shooting in Fredericton to come forward.

"We will not forget the two fallen police officers whose sacrifice no doubt saved lives and prevented even greater tragedy". @CityFredPolice will continue to release information.

The Fredericton police said in a post on Twitter they had taken one suspect in custody. "I wasn't surprised to see that he later became an officer". Costello was a 20-year veteran, and left behind four children.

Costello had two daughters from a previous relationship, but McLean said he was also a role model for her own two children.

A Fredericton hospital, Dr. Everett Chalmers Regional, "is now treating multiple victims of today's shooting", the local health authority said shortly before noon.

The CBC says people have started to be escorted to safety by police.

"Our hearts are broken by the murder of our two fearless police officers", Fredericton Mayor Mike O'Brien said in a tweet.

Scott Hill, a local business owner, said he was told that the shooting happened in an apartment complex near his business. A local health official said multiple shooting victims were being treated at one hospital.

It is rare in Canada for police officers to be killed in the line of duty.

Four people were killed, including two policemen, during a shooting this morning on a quiet suburban road in Canada.

The shootings occurred in the Nashwaaksis area of the city of 60,000, north of the downtown district and the St. John River that snakes through the middle of town.

Tim Morehouse, a resident of the neighbourhood, said he was in his apartment when he heard someone shout: "Shut up!"

Jeff Magnussen, the general manager of the West Hills Golf Course in Fredericton, N.B., was getting the day's first golfers out onto the course early Friday morning when he heard a few "pops".
