Two very young children among eight members of family killed by a gun man in what police describe as ‘senseless mass murder’ linked to ‘extreme domestic violence’. The bodies were found at three locations in Edmonton, in the western province of Alberta. The bodies of seven people were found in one location. The gunman had shot himself dead. He had a list of criminal convictions dating back to 1987.
Police are not looking for anyone else and have not released names of the deceased.
