Four people, including two police officers, were killed in a shooting in eastern Canada on Friday in the latest eruption of gun violence across the country that has led to calls for weapons bans in cities.

Police in Fredericton, a city of about 56,000, said a suspect was in custody and being treated for serious injuries.

The Fredericton Police Department Twitter page says that two of the people killed in the shooting are police officers.
