FREDERICTON, New Brunswick — Canadian police said Friday that two of the four killed in a shooting in the eastern city of Fredericton, New Brunswick, are police officers.

Fredericton police said one suspect is in custody, and they are not releasing the names of the slain officers yet.

 The shooting happened in an apartment complex.

David MacCoubrey, who lives in Fredericton, said he heard about 20 shots and hid on his kitchen floor

“I’m on my floor,” he said in a phone interview. “The cops have come through my place. They have searched all the apartments in the building. It sounded like it started in the courtyard area.”

He awoke in his apartment on Brookside Drive around 7 a.m. local time to the sound of three gunshots 33 feet from his bed.
