Gunfire erupted in a residential corner of New Brunswick's capital city Friday morning, leaving four people dead — including two police officers — and an undisclosed number injured.

In her Fredericton home, Alexandra Bain woke up to a phone call from a relative in Halifax, telling her to lock her doors and stay inside.

She heard sirens outside as she watched the news develop, and messages poured in from concerned friends and family around the world.

  Slain Fredericton officers leave behind families, spoke of on-the-job dangers Robert Costello and Sara Burns have been identified as the Fredericton city police officers killed in a Friday morning shooting that left four people dead on the city’s north side.Two civilians are also dead and an unknown number of people were wounded. The identities of the civilians, a man and a woman, have not been released.

Several sports teams and athletes showed their support on social media with the #TorontoStrong hashtag, which was also used after the Toronto van attack earlier in the year.[37]. "Toronto shooting: woman and gunman dead, 13 others injured in Danforth Avenue attack ".

Fredericton has also been home to some great historical Canadian painters as well, including Goodridge Roberts, and Molly and Bruno Bobak. Within weeks of an attack of French and Indigenous forces launched from Fort Nashwaak on Pemaquid, Maine (present day Bristol, Maine)

"I was woken up by somebody in Halifax telling me, and within minutes friends were texting from Croatia. It sure hit the news fast," said Bain, who turned 63 Friday.

For Bain, the news was especially unsettling just weeks after she sat a few blocks away from a gun attack in Toronto's Danforth neighbourhood.

On July 22, Bain was sitting with her family at City Betty restaurant on the Danforth when news broke that a shooter had opened fire nearby.

"My son-in-law looked at his phone and said 'Holy (expletive), there's an active shooting just down the street,'" Bain recalls.

The attack claimed the lives of a 10-year-old girl and an 18-year-old woman, and injured 12 others.

Bain — whose Fredericton home is a fair distance from Brookside Drive, the site of Friday's shootings — was emotional thinking of the victims of both attacks and their families.

"I'm praying for everyone who was involved and who lost loved ones. And I hope this stops."
