New Brunswick Shooter Charged with 4 Counts of First-Degree Murder
CANADIAN PRESS -- FREDERICTON - Police say a 48-year-old man charged with four counts of first-degree murder in Friday's shooting in Fredericton was shot by police and is receiving treatment in hospital.
Fredericton Police Chief Leanne Fitch told a news conference Saturday that Matthew Vincent Raymond was charged in the deaths of Bobbie Lee Wright, Donnie Robichaud, Const. Robb Costello and Const. Sara Burns.
She alleges the accused was shooting a long gun from an ``elevated position.''
Fitch says officers have not established a link between the accused and the victims, but notes that the investigation is ongoing.
She says there's no indication that police officers were specifically targeted in the shooting.
Robichaud and Wright were in a new relationship, according to his cousin, Sean Callahan: They had just gotten together at the beginning of August.
