2 Comments

Canadian police say a 60-year-old man is in custody after four targeted shootings that killed two men and two women in the city of Penticton, British Columbia.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police Supt Ted De Jager says the suspect and the four victims knew each other but gave no details. He says the suspect turned himself in after Monday's shooting.

Such gun violence is rare in Canada.

Police say they received a call about a possible shooting in downtown Penticton about 10:30 a.m. De Jager says one person was found dead in the north end and the three others were found in the south end.

This shouldn’t be possible with Canada’s strict gun control?
