Fredericton police say at least four people have died in a shooting, and one suspect is in custody.

Police said on Twitter that the Brookside Drive area on the city's north side would be blocked off for the forseeable future as β€œthe investigation is ongoing.”

Earlier Friday morning, police were asking people in the area to stay inside with their doors locked, and not to post information on social media about the position or activities of police.

David MacCoubrey says he awoke in his apartment on Brookside Drive around 7:07 a.m. AT today to the sound of gunshots β€œ10 metres from my bed.”

MacCoubrey says three gunshots woke him up, and as many as 17 more have been fired between that time and around 8:30 a.m.

He says his apartment complex has four buildings in a square, and it sounded like the shots were coming from the middle of the complex.
