These Are The Victims Of The Fredericton Shooting

On Friday, friends and colleagues remembered the fallen officer as gentle and compassionate, a man who thought the world of his children and always had a smile on his face.

In a news release Friday evening, New Brunswick RCMP said they hope the footage will help them determine the circumstances surrounding the shooting, that left four people dead.

"He loved being a police officer and he lived for being a police officer", she told The Canadian Press in an interview. The Fredericton Police Force subsequently declared via Twitter that there was "no further threat to the public".

Costello and Const. Sara Burns were the first officers to arrive at the scene of the early morning shooting. They were polite, they didn't treat people differently.

Secord retired from the Saint John Police Force in March after serving for almost 30 years.

Gallant said he was working in his Shediac Bay-Dieppe riding office Friday morning when his chief of staff called to let him know what happened, and made his way to Fredericton after that.

After announcing that the suspect - who has not been identified - is in custody, police tweeted that the Brookside area would be "contained for the foreseeable future" because the investigation is ongoing. "They treated a homeless person the same as they would treat a rich person".

She leaves behind a husband, Steve, and three children. "Canadians stand with you during this hard time", he said. "During this hard time, our thoughts are also with the courageous women and men on the front lines working to keep us safe", Gallant said.

Costello was from Sussex, N.B., and trained as a police officer at Holland College in Prince Edward Island.

Burns told a newspaper in 2015 that she saw policing as a demanding career. "It's a really challenging field and to survive you need to keep all of those in check".

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau expressed his sorrow at the gun violence.

"They did not think twice about what they had to do to keep their fellow Canadians safe", Trudeau said in a statement.

Two officers from the Fredericton Police Force were among those killed Friday: Lawrence Robert Costello and Sara Mae Helen Burns.

In recent years, Costello drew the ire of local blogger and anti-police activist Charles LeBlanc. He said he looked out his window and saw the body of a man on the ground, in the back parking lot of 237 Brookside Dr. "It is a real shock but I'll get calmed down".

"As we remember the awful tragedy that struck two weeks ago, the loss of life, the way the community came together, there is a great town a few hours east of here, our friends in Fredericton, who are going through a very, very hard night", Trudeau said.
