FREDERICTON — The family of one of two police officers killed during today’s shooting in Fredericton has identified him as Robb Costello.
Jackie McLean says a police inspector told the family this morning that her common-law partner was among the four people who died in the incident.
McLean says the couple had been together for four years and Costello has two adult daughters from a previous relationship.
Fredericton police have one person in custody and say there is no further threat to the public after the incident in the city’s north side that began at about 7 a.m.
Police said the suspect was also being treated for serious injuries.
More to come.
