One person has been taken into custody after at least four people were killed in a shooting in the eastern Canadian city of Fredericton، police have said، according to RTE.

Police in Fredericton، a city of about 56،000 that is the capital of the province of New Brunswick، said in a post on Twitter the incident was continuing and there were multiple fatalities.

Another police tweet said one person was taken into custody but gave no immediate details on where the incident occurred.

Police earlier urged people in the area of the shooting to remain in their homes، describing it as an "active incident" on Twitter around an hour after giving first word of the killings.

The circumstances of the shooting in the capital of New Brunswick province were not immediately known.

The Canadian broadcaster CBC said that the shooting happened in a residential area of the city and that paramedics and firefighters were on the scene.
