    BREAKING: @CityFredPolice confirm two of the four people killed in this morning's shootings on Brookside Drive were Fredericton police officers. No names are being released at this time.

    Media initially took the 'mass shooting' angle and ran with it but seem to be dialing it back a bit. Be really interesting to hear what went down. I don't know how anyone could be a police officer.. more balls than me

    I hate to gossip because I can't be sure this information is genuine but I've read the shooter was formerly involved with the female civilian victim. The male civilian victim was the female victim's new partner. The initial shots fired call that the police responded to was the civilian casualties. The officers then became third and fouth victims of the shooter.

    If this turns out to be someone's fantasy that I'm recapping I'll be back to delete this, or you should.

    The situation is terrible but you have the commend the Canadian media for not plastering the shooter all over the place and having hours dedicated to finding out every detail about him like the US news channels do.

    Was handled really well. CNN tried to spin it into some US-style massacre but dropped it when they realized it wasn't

    Heard some details released about the victims on the radio today. No mention at all of the sack of shit who did this awful crime. That should be law.

    This is exactly what I've been hearing too. Jelaous EX type thing.... shot them, then started on the Police.

    Also, the males (and probably the female) were / are connected to the Bacchus biker crew.

    I know quite a bit having close friends related to victims in one way or another. That being said I believe what I type to be accurate but I am no journalist.

    - Shooter was recent ex to the girl who was shot
    - Rumors shooter related to Bacchus crew, but I was told pretty sternly by those closely related to incident that is not true.

    the rumor that he was part of Bacchus would make sense as killed two cops so quickly and would be a "hero" in jail. but if he isnt then guy is nuts..

    I get not wanting to make the guy famous but I do like to get in their heads and try to understand their life, thoughts etc in order to try and comprehend why they would do this or at least confirm it was not something your average friend would have done, if that makes any sense.
