Canada. Police kill militant who killed two people and injured others near Vancouver

The gunman killed two people and injured two more in a series of shootings near Vancouver early Monday morning before he was shot and killed by police.

There were earlier reports that the attacker was targeting the homeless, but this was not immediately confirmed by Langley authorities, who witnessed the incident in southeast Vancouver.

“I can confirm that four people were shot dead by one shooter,” Langley Police Chief Galeb Bahiani told a press conference.

Later, two of the victims died, while the woman is still in critical condition, and the fourth injured his leg.

Bahiani added that authorities are currently working to identify the victims and the suspect in the shooting and to verify if there is any connection between them.

“We are currently in the process of establishing the exact nature of these people and cannot confirm that they are homeless,” criminal investigator David Lee said of the victims.
