FREDERICTON, New Brunswick (RNN) - At least four people, including two city police officers, died in a Friday morning shooting at an apartment complex in Fredericton, the capital of New Brunswick, police reported.

A suspect was in custody and being treated for "serious injuries," and investigations are ongoing.

The officers killed were later identified as Lawrence Robert Costello, 45, and Sara Burns, 43.

The third victim was identified as 42-year-old Donnie Robichaud, a Fredericton musician, the CBC reported late Friday night.

The fourth victim, a female civilian, has not been identified, according to the CBC.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau expressed his sorrow at the gun violence. "My heart goes out to everyone affected by this morning’s shooting. We’re following the situation closely," he tweeted.

Though Canada doesn't have the level of gun violence as the U.S., the country has shootings. A mass shooting in Toronto in July killed two and injured 13.

In 2016, there were 223 gun-related slayings in Canada, according to the BBC. Gun ownership is federally regulated in Canada. 

In the U.S., gun violence kills about 11,000 people each year, Business Insider said.
