Three people, including the suspected gunman, have been killed after a series of shootings in a Vancouver suburb, Canadian police say.
Most of the attacks were in the city of Langley, while another reported shooting was in neighboring Langley Township.
In total, four people were shot dead, presumably including a woman who remained in critical condition.
Officers in British Columbia said the shootings involved “unfortunate victims.” Some reports said homeless people were shot.
Members of the public were urged to stay away from a number of areas, including a casino parking lot and a bus stop.
Police said they responded to “multiple reports of shots fired with several victims and several different scenes throughout the city of Langley, and one scene in the township of Langley”.
Earlier it was announced that a man had been arrested after the attacks.
In a warning sent to local residents, officials said that the suspect was described as a white man wearing overalls and a camouflage T-shirt.
The Globe and Mail reported that yellow police tape surrounded a sandwich shop and a parking lot in Langley at the site of one of the shootings.
A black tent, presumably for forensic work, was erected over one of the crime scenes.
Nearby, the windshield and driver’s side window of an unmarked black police SUV were riddled with bullet holes at a store in the Langley Centre.
A white car was parked next to the forensics tent a short distance from the black SUV.
Nearby there were orange cones around a blue sleeping bag and a bicycle, while in the middle of the street a pair of shoes and a piece of clothing were taped up.
