The Fredericton shooting was a mass shooting that occurred in FrederictonNew Brunswick, Canada, on the morning of 10 August 2018, in which four people, including two police officers, were killed.[2][3] One suspect, Matthew Vincent Raymond, is in custody.[1][4]

Shooting[edit]

On 10 August 2018, around 7:00 a.m. ADT, multiple witnesses reported dozens of shots being fired on Brookside Drive between Main Street and Ring Road in a residential neighbourhood on the north side of the city of Fredericton.[5][6] The area was locked down by Fredericton Police, who told residents to stay in their homes.[5] At 8:17, police said they were investigating a shooting with multiple fatalities, and asked people to avoid the area.[7] The two deceased officers were reportedly the first responding officers to the scene, and the two civilian victims were already on the ground when officers responded.[8]
Around 9:00, an apartment building located at 237 Brookside Drive was evacuated.[5] A resident of the building told reporters that he awoke to gunshots around 8:30, looked out his window and saw three bodies.[9] Officers stated around 9:30, they entered an apartment and arrested the suspect.[10]
Around 11:00, local police said that there was no further threat to the public and the lockdown was lifted.[6] Police said that the area would be contained for the "foreseeable future" due to the ongoing investigation.[6]

Victims[edit]

At 10:28 ADT,[7] Fredericton Police said two of the four dead were police officers.[5] Dr. Everett Chalmers Regional Hospitalreported it was treating multiple victims.[5][6] On August 11, the hospital clarified that it had received only the four fatalities and the injured shooter.[11]
The dead officers were 45-year-old Lawrence Robert Costello and 43-year-old Sara Burns. Police have identified two dead civilians as musician Donnie Robichaud and his girlfriend, Bobbie-Lee Wright. The ex-wife of victim Donnie Robichaud told the media that she swore at Justin Trudeau during his condolence call with her.[12]

Suspect[edit]

Police said they shot and arrested a suspect, 48-year-old Matthew Vincent Raymond, who sustained serious injuries.[13][14][15]Multiple media sources have reported that he was interested in first-person shooter video games and was known for being 'ignorant' and 'Islamophobic.'[16][17][18] Others, notably the office manager for the apartment complex, described him as 'polite' and 'pleasant.'[19] Raymond was charged with four counts of first degree murder.[20]

Investigation[edit]

The West District detachment of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Major Crimes Division (RCMP) and Fredericton Policewere conducting an investigation into the shooting.[5] Police asked reporters at the scene to pass any pertinent information to investigators. In the immediate aftermath, police said that they were "at the early stages of a very significant event."[5] A spokesperson for Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Ralph Goodale said that it was a "developing situation" and it was "premature to determine whether there are any national security implications."[21]
Fredericton Police have asked for any documentation by civilians of the incident to come forward for investigation purposes.[8]
The gunman is said to have fired onto people from an elevated position using a long gun.[22]
publication ban on the details of the shooting was lifted on August 17.[23]

Reactions[edit]

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Ralph Goodale tweeted messages of support.[5] New Brunswick Premier Brian Gallant and Fredericton Mayor Mike O'Brien shared their condolences for the victims and their families.[5]
Police forces from across Canada also sent messages of solidarity and support on social media.[5] Some residents of the area likened the incident to the 2014 Moncton shooting, and one said, "Immediately, I thought of Justin Bourque. Obviously, we have no way of knowing at this time what the situation is, but there seems to be the same level of worry and fear."[24]

Tributes[edit]

A memorial vigil was held on 10 August, at St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church, and a makeshift memorial for the victims was created outside the Fredericton Police Station.[8] Fundraisers for the victims, were established through GoFundMealthough initially neither the officers families nor the Fredericton Police had sanctioned any fundraisers on the website.[25]
A local boy recorded a cover of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah with some of the lyrics changed to focus on the two deceased officers. The initial video was viewed by over 400,000 times by August 13, and he was invited to perform it live at one of the vigils for the victims.[26]
On August 18, the two officers were given a regimental funeral. It was attended by hundreds of police officers from around the country, as well as friends and families of the victims.[27]

Alleged Fredericton gunman tweeted about death of Moncton Mounties

Karissa Donkin, Shane Fowler · CBC News · Posted: Aug 17, 2018 6:00 AM AT 

The man accused of murdering four people in Fredericton, including two police officers, tweeted often about first-person shooter video games and, four years ago, about the deaths of three Moncton Mounties during that city's shocking shootings.

Matthew Vincent Raymond was active on Twitter for about four years using the username "ColtC8," also the name of a powerful, military-grade carbine.

Details about the life of the 48-year-old Fredericton man have been slow to emerge, partly because he had no obvious social media or online presence.

But social media and gaming accounts he created under various aliases offer insights into the online presence of a man accused of one of the highest-profile crimes in the city's history.

Two days after Justin Bourque shot and killed three RCMP officers on June 4, 2014, in Moncton, N.B., Raymond tweeted his agreement with a user who said the shooter's name should not be trending on Twitter.

"Yes. The slain constables and the injured ones should be for front [sic] to all this madness," Raymond wrote.

He also criticized people who were tweeting the position of police officers during the hunt for Bourque.

"People wake up & shut up," Raymond wrote.

"Your comments could get someone killed."

He described the events as a "sad couple days."
Raymond's last tweet, directed at a website that reviews tactical gear, asked where he could get batons.

"Seems like they are hard to find in Canada," Raymond wrote in March 2017.

"Batons are hard to find for civilians," the tactical website responded.

Friendly and 'odd'
Raymond faces first-degree murder charges in the deaths of Fredericton police constables Robb Costello, 45, and Sara Burns, 43. He's also accused of shooting and killing Donnie Robichaud, 42, and Robichaud's girlfriend, Bobbie Lee Wright, 32.

Police have said the long gun allegedly used in the crimes was legally obtainable in Canada and Raymond had a license to possess firearms.

But officials have said little else about him.

The picture that has emerged so far has many contradictions. People who know Raymond have described him both as "friendly" and "odd," with all saying he was an avid cyclist who spent a lot of time playing video games.

At least two people who knew Raymond have questioned whether he was able to separate reality from the games he was playing. But millions of other people have played the same games and have not done what Raymond is alleged to have done.

Raymond was active on websites where people stream videos of themselves playing video games and engage with other gamers online.

All the platforms link back to a single email address, provided by an acquaintance of Raymond's.

Shooting games
On his Microsoft Xbox account, Raymond is listed as playing about a dozen different games.

Many of them revolved around racing and first-person shooting, including several iterations of Battlefield and Call of Duty.
"There is my way, and the right way," Raymond's Xbox bio says.

"Both are the same."

In 2013, Raymond appears to have abandoned the Xbox platform in favour of playing on a PC.

He created an account on Steam, an online platform for purchasing digital video games.

Raymond's bio on Steam shows he played at least 479 hours of Heroes and Generals, a first-person shooter game.

He posted screenshots on his Steam account of his high scores, along with the guns and ammunition he used in the game.

However, Raymond's Steam account states he has been been offline and the account dormant since April 17.

That is about the same time he is reported to have moved out of his family home and into Building C at 237 Brookside Dr., where the deadly attack took place.
