4 dead after shooting in Canada; 1 male suspect in custody

RCMP have confirmed four people were found dead after a shooting spree in Penticton on Monday.

De Jager says the Mounties received a call about a possible shooting in the downtown at about 10:30 a.m., and the suspect was taken into custody about an hour later.

"A little later I came out and saw all the commotion here with police cars and a deceased person lying under the tree", resident Renee Myers told Castanet.

Supt. Ted De Jager says the suspect turned himself in at the city's police headquarters. Charges are pending, according to the superintendent.

"I can say from an investigative perspective, we are glad he did that so the community isn't on pins and needles [worrying that he is at large]".

"Our thoughts are certainly with the families of the victims and Victims Services will be provided", he said, adding that the RCMP has deployed additional resources from the Southeast District to help with the investigation including a helicopter and the detachments Emergency Response Team. As police were en route to the scene, a second shooting was reported.

"Preliminary indications are this was a targeted incident", the statement said.

He said more than 30 officers were involved in the response to the shootings and a sweep did not find any other victims.

A woman at one of the scenes told Castanet there had been a shooting during which her husband was killed. Mr. Schwarz said the violence may have been related to a dispute between neighbours and emphasized Mr.

Police, who have arrested a male suspect around 11 am Monday local time, asked people in the city to stay inside their homes and workplaces and avoid the downtown area where police had cordoned off because of "a serious, unfolding situation".

They asked the public to follow the direction of police and to avoid areas bordered by Eckhardt Avenue, Lakeshore Drive, and Main and Power streets.

"The fact that we had the Emergency Response Team already en route, it was something that we chose to deploy them at that in the circumstances and information we had at that point", De Jager said.

With a population of about 30,000, Penticton is a city in British Columbia in the country.
