Fredericton police have identified two police officers who were among four people killed in a shooting today in a residential area on the city’s north side.
Police Chief Leanne Fitch says the victims include 45-year-old Const. Robb Costello and 43-year-old Const. Sarah Burns.
Jackie McLean, Costello’s wife, says a police inspector told the family this morning that her common-law partner was among the dead.
McLean says the couple had been together for four years and Costello has two adult daughters from a previous relationship.
Fitch says Burns was a married mother of three.
The identities of the two other victims, a woman and a man, are being withheld pending next of kin notification.
