Matthew Vincent Raymond, 48, charged in Fredericton shooting
Fredericton police say Matthew Vincent Raymond has been charged with four counts of first-degree murder in the shooting deaths of two police officers and two civilians.
Police say the 48-year-old Fredericton man is accused of killing Bobbie Lee Wright and Donnie Robichaud, as well as constables Robb Costello and Sara Burns in the Friday morning shooting.
Sean Callahan is the cousin of Donnie Robichaud. He told reporters that Robichaud was a loving father and friend who played bass and sang in a few local bands, worked in autobody shops, enjoyed riding his Harley Davidson and was the kind of guy who was always there to lend a hand.
As of Saturday morning, the residential area where the incident took place remained cordoned off and a mobile police command post is on scene. An officer said it was unclear how long the probe would take and police have asked anyone who captured photos or video of the incident to come forward.
Police haven't said if the accused knew any of the deceased.
